Lipomas are benign fatty tumors. They can occur anywhere on the body and can be uncomfortable and painful
Lipomas are slow-growing, non-cancerous tumors that are made up of fat cells. Ranging from the size of a pea to that of a tennis ball, lipomas can occur anywhere in the body where fat cells are present, especially on the arms, legs, and torso. They occur in 1% of the population, particularly in middle-aged adults.
