Should I Get This Lipoma Checked Out On My Stomach?

Hi There, My doctor thinks I have a lipomas on my stomach. My parents and sibling have all died from cancer. Do you think I should have a biopsy since it has grown?

Growing lipoma

always safest to at least get the lipoma examined by a surgeon or doctor.

 

biopsy is the only 100% way to tell what it is.

 

all other ways are less than 100%
