Lipomas

Posted by trish on December 30, 1998 at 11:58:37:

I could have sworn I saw a thread about these guys awhile back, but have been unable to find it.

Anyone have any experience in getting rid of these things?

My friend has one near his groin area and one on the front of his thigh. The one near the groin is somewhat of a nuisance, but of course not bad enough to want to have surgery. He just had an appointment to have these diagnosed, and because they are free-floating, the doc says lipomas. He also said that the one near the groin is just above a tendon and that is why it's annoying; it keeps getting moved around and squished. Any comments?

thanks as always,
trish

Hi, trish.

Lipomas are pretty easy to diagnose.

Those people with recurrent and multiple lipomas can usually prevent more (and sometimes even see existing ones disappear) by doing the essential oils described on the home page.

In most cases surgical removal of existing ones is needed.

Touching or massaging existing lipomas usually makes them larger.
