I had a good sized lipoma removed from my back. I had for over 5 years thinking little about it, but it started to bother me.
I was referred by my doctor to a surgeon. It was done in a hospital as an out-patient surgery. They put me totally under and I remember very little, and had almost no pain, just uncomfortable.
The whole thing was covered be insurance and all I had to pay was a $200 co-pay. The only con is the scar it left.
