I was in pain prior to the lipoma. So, yes it was very worth it, but I want to know when I am going to be better...I had a lump in my hair for several months; however, it did not give me problems until recently. I started having migraines with the pain orginating from the lump's location. I went... READ MORE

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... READ MORE

I get these on my arms and legs. They do not hurt but look ugly, especially as they grow larger. Getting them cut out was simple. My Dr injected me with local pain killer and they were cut out within 5 minutes for each one. It was so simple, I wished that I'd done it years ago. I've added... READ MORE

I have a rare disease called Madelung's Disease, which causes bilateral lipomas (fat deposits in various areas). Because of this, I had very large fat deposits on both sides of my neck causing my appearance to change drastically. As the disease progressed, and my appearance was altered, I had... READ MORE

I have had a lipoma on my back for several years as well as back pain in the same area (unknown if related, but wanted lipoma removed to see if that was the cause). Dr. Janjua removed the ipoma from my back using liposuction. From our first meeting I knew I made the right decision going to him.... READ MORE

Both my Lipomas were the upper left side of my abdomen. I have pain when I bend over for more than a minute. My first was 8 cm by 8 and this last one was 4 cm by 5 cm. I have a huge problem after my last one a bit over a week ago with swelling in my abdomen. I thought I had gained 20 lbs... READ MORE

My motivation to see Dr. Sullivan was simply that I had some cysts in my scalp that needed to removed. As this is a hereditary and reoccurring unfortunate of circumstances I have it taken care every couple of years. In my experiences with him and his work I would consider it close to flawless....

I first learned of Dr. Joshua Lampert while viewing a news report which profiled/featured Dr. Lampert and his expertise on a specific medical case. Subsequent to viewing the broadcast I considered my own medical issues, in which I had consulted with several doctors; none of whom could... READ MORE

I saw a lump on my face overtime I looked in the mirror, my GP would not do anything and guessed it was "nothing", said I would have major scarring if it was removed and perhaps muscle problems, I was concerned and sought further treatment, had it removed by Dr. Dawes, not only is there barely...

A couple of years ago I noticed a little bump on my forehead that I at first aid little attention to. I was ore interested in where it came from and whether it was benign. After a longer period of time, that may have even been years, since the bump refused to disappear, I opted for having it... READ MORE

I have a family history of lipomas. I had three removed many years ago, in my early twenties. Since then, I have developed many more. Some were becoming uncomfortable...and worse, some noticeable. Dr. Janjua did a wonderful job...not only with the initial consultation...but also with every... READ MORE

From my first consultation with Dr. Rao I felt certain I was in great hands. I had suffered with a lipoma on my leg for 10 years, had met with two surgeons previously who would not consider my case. Dr. Rao was very confident and explained exactly how he could perform the surgery necessary to... READ MORE

After months of pain and discomfort, I was finally told I had a pilonidal cyst located near the end of my tailbone. Dr. Lytle was very accommodating and was able to fit me in to his schedule. As having a procedure done in this area is a very awkward thing, I must say Dr. Lytle was wonderful. He... READ MORE

Dr. Lytle was very empathetic and reassuring before surgery. He did an excellent job removing my tumor; through a very small and skillfully placed incision. My post op pain was managed nicely with a long acting analgesic he used at the end of the procedure. After surgery, he was very... READ MORE
