Apple Cider Vinegar and Snake Oil Don't Remove Lipomas

It would be extremely unlikely that this treatment would work as a lipoma is a collection of fat cells that continues to grow. If apple cider vinegar affected this it would also affect all of your fat cells. 
Another wive's tail I am afraid. Surgical excision is the standard way to remove these growths.

No - I am unaware of apple cider vinegar being an effective treatment to reduce the lipoma.

Surgical excision is an appropriate method to remove lipomas.  You should be assessed in person by a board-certified plastic surgeon who can go over the various options for you.

I hope that this helps and good luck,

Apple cider vinegar to treat lipoma

Drinking apple cider vinegar will not improve a lipoma.  There are no safe methods for someone to remove or treat a lipoma by themselves.  Surgical removal is the proven treatment and needs to be done by a trained surgeon.

Thank you for your question.  Unfortunately consuming apple cider vinegar will not reduce the size of a lipoma. Unfortunately the only tried and true curative method is surgical excision.  Hope this helps.
