Lipoma Removal for 8 Year Old Child? Safe to Undergo Surgery at This Age?

My daughter has this lipoma in between her eyes and nose.  About 4 times already, we visited a certain surgeon to remove this but I was afraid my daughter to have this GENERAL ANESTHESIA. Is it okay that my daughter undergo now to a surgical operation?

Mass between her eye brows may be a cyst and not lipoma

If your daughter is other wise healthy she should be able to tolerate general anesthesia.  The diagnosis of the mas between her eye brows may not be a lipoma but a cyst.  Make sure you are seen by a qualified surgeon to get the best care.
