There are no nonsurgical treatments for lipomas at this time.  Any mass that is increasing in size is considered a tumor, and should be removed surgically and sent for pathologic analysis to determine the diagnosis.

Thank you for the question.

No, there is no nonsurgical modality for removal of lipomas available. Especially for lipomas that are increasing in size, I would suggest excision if possible.

Best wishes.
