Thank you for sharing your question and I am sorry that your lipomas have caused you to worry.  In the vast majority of cases lipomas are completely benign and will not cause you any issues.  Occasionally they can grow and result in moderate discomfort or a cosmetic issue and can then be removed with a small in-office procedure.  Hope that this helps.
