I'm having my second lipoma episode in a few years. My case seems so atypical from what I read online so I worry that something worse is happening.

1. It's on the front of my body, above my upper right ribs
2. It feels like a bruise to the touch. There's some pain in the area, especially after messing with it. This scares me a lot. Should it?
3. It feels like it may actually be two. Like there's a small pea shaped one just south of it. This ones even more painful. But feeling it from different angles changes what it feels like. This makes me think "satellite tumor," "metastasis," "liposarcoma." Should it?
4. Even combined it feels small. Less that one inch long and even small in width. Pretty soft and wiggles a lot.
5. Because this is my second (and maybe third) does that mean it's more likely a lipoma than liposarcoma? Do people with potential if lipoma have an increased risk of eventually developing a cancerous one?


Is this a normal experience. I'm scared.

Atypical? Quite the opposite, actually.

1) One of the most common spots, I'm afraid.
2) No need to be scared - very normal, unfortunately.
3) Lipomas often have "siblings" right next to each other. My assumption is that either they somehow leak, or there's some opportunistic microbe still around that eventually lead to new lipomas. Often times lipomas are also very irregular so that they might feel like multiple different tumors although infact just one.
4) That's what most of us have. Mature lipomas are usually 1-2 inch.
5) More likely a lipoma than anything else and people with lipomas have just a faintly increased risk of developing liposarcoma. Just to give you ease of mind I recom that you do a short visit to the doc who can diagnose your lump in a matter of secs!

All in all, your description sounds more than "normal" if that's the word that any of us wants to use :)

Thanks, Matt! Can some of them be very sensitive? I hadn't touched mine for a few days, and it was fine. I checked it just today, and now the area is very sensitive. I appreciate your time and patience. I am a hypochondriac (diagnosed with health related anxiety) and am having trouble processing that I just have to live with tumors. I may have some more now, though I'm having trouble determining what is what when feeling for them.
