Herbal Cure for Lipoma?

I'm 38 years old and have developed lipomas fast. I started out with 1 on the top of my right rib cage, just below my right chest and now I have them on my back, mid-stomach, and side stomach. All lipomas seem to be in those areas. Lipomas do hurt when I take a deep breath while exercising. The lipomas give me back pain. Are their herbal cures? I keep reading other site in India that speak of many herbal remedies.

Herbal Cure for Lipoma?

No, there is no “herbal cure” for lipoma that I am aware of.

Generally, I  recommend excision to allow for pathologic evaluation (which is the only  way to make a definitive diagnosis) and to  alleviate compressive symptoms it may be causing (as well as for cosmetic purposes).

Best wishes.

Lipoma cure with herbal medications

There is no identifiable herbal or non-invasive tool to remove or disintegrate lipomas. At this time surgery remains your best option.

Herbal cures for lipomas may exist but I am not aware of any

Painful lipomas are an hereditary condition that usually requires surgical removal. In many cases, surgery can be accomplished with a Slim Lipo canula to soften the fat and then the lipoma can be removed through a small incision.
