 My doctor said everyone has lipomas? Or is it lipomatosis?

Hi everyone. I am still relatively new to the lipoma thing. I had one removed a couple of years ago, and I've found at least one more this year, though I still have trouble determining whether or not what I find are lipomas. If I have multiple, does that mean I have lipomatosis?

Every time I see my primary care doctor about this, he tells me the same thing. He tells me that they are so normal, and that the average adult actually has about six. However, I've read that only 1-2 percent of adults even have one. Has anyone heard the statistic my doctor listed? Do most people have some, maybe just unnoticed?

Hi Kenny777! Thanks for posting.

Generally, if you have multiple lipomas, then yes you have lipomatosis. Lipomas are common but I believe the amount of 1-2 percent is more accurate. So, about 1-2 persons from hundred have lipomas. Pretty common but not everyone develops them. Perhaps your doc meant that from those 1-2 percent average amount of lipomas is six since you are more prone to develop more than one lipomas if you have any..?

Hi I'm Matt - the creator and owner of this site. I have dozens of small nasty lipomas all over. I've tried many treatments including surgery and Lipostabil injections.
