What is a lipoma?

A lipoma is a small, fatty lump that grows under a person’s skin. Lipomas typically appear on the shoulders, trunk, neck, or armpits. It is not clear what cause lipomas, but they are usually harmless. Surgeons can remove lipomas for cosmetic reasons or if they are causing pain or other symptoms. Learn more here.
