Will Lipoma Removal Require Hospitalization?

My Lipoma is in the inguinal region, it suddenly increased in size, became painful and started oozing blood and pus. I want to have it removed. How long will it take and will it require hospitalization?

You need to be evaluated by your doctor as soon as you can arrange it. This does not sound like a Lipoma. A lipoma very rarely, if ever, becomes infected.
