Tennis Ball Lipoma from my Neck - Miami, FL

ENT cancer surgeon said I shouldn't get lipoma...

ENT cancer surgeon said I shouldn't get lipoma from neck removed as it may cause more harm than good. It grew and now two yrs later I went back and it had grown to the size of a tennis ball.

Week later it's out and they also took out an enlarged lymph node, Initial biopsy negative, They also put in an Alloderm implant to counter the concave - very unsure about that, area is numb and seems as unsightly as the lump before ...

Still only a week out of surgery so we'll see. I am very happy its out and the large incision is in a fold that shouldn't be that noticeable ...
