#Lipoma Removal - Is this a lipoma?
It's hard to tell from these photos - if you can take some from a little farther away we might be able to get better perspective on exactly what this represents. Either way, though, you'll need to be seen in person, preferably by a board-certified plastic or other surgeon, for a full and complete assessment. A typical lipoma is a circumscribed, well-defined mass that protrudes from the area around it; it's difficult to say if that applies in this case. An in-person exam would be the next step. I hope that this helps and good luck. Dr. Alan Engler, Member of #RealSelf500.

Thank you for sharing your question and photographs. Unfortunately it is not clear what this area of your inner thigh is as it may be a lipoma but more likely is excess adipose tissue with some lymphatic system changes. I would advise seeing your general practice/family medicine doctor for an in-person evaluation. They can offer appropriate testing or referral to a specialist for the best advice. Best wishes.
