Personal Information
23 year old male, physically fit as required by the military. My mother has always had lipomas. I have not drank alcohol for over 3 years. For years I have had approximately 30 lipomas all over my body, mostly where I know I have had prior contact/injury. I played football in highschool and feel like the impacts I had are now locations of lipomas. Every now and then I discover a new one. I don't really like looking for them because I know I will find more.

Removal
I have had 5 lipomas removed. None have came back and I do not regret getting the surgery done. The first time I was put to sleep and that was actually enjoyable. I even got off work for a couple of days. The most recent surgery I was awake during the procedure, got to look at my lipomas and had to go to work that afternoon. My insurance provided by the military I believe is the best possible and I pay nothing when I go get them removed. So I will continue to get them cut out of me.

Items of interest
I never think about my lipomas until they start to hurt. Under extreme stress such as when my friend recently passed away they started hurting worse than usual, like they are expanding and pressing against my nerves. If I lose weight the surrounding fat they normally hide in is gone. Making the lipomas appear larger and more prominent.

Outlook
I am very impressed with this site and I cant wait to find out more about these lovely lumps that I put up with on a daily basis. I would like to be as much of a help as I can and im willing to try things out and report of the effects. I feel like there is some unknown secret to the root cause of lipomas and why they are non cancerous. Maybe they could even lead to the cure of cancer? Far fetched thinking I know but one can only be positive.

Thank you very much for sharing!
It's interesting how quite several people mentioned here already that the bumping/hitting results in a lipoma. I can't really attest to that from my experience, but then again, I've never done any sports, except 1 year of Karate when I was 10.
I do workout on bars, such as pushups, dips, muscle ups, etc. and I'm still getting lipomas all over my body. I haven't tried stopping workouts for several years and seeing if they'll slow down... Primarily because I don't believe they will, and even if they will a little, it's not worse the trade for me. Workouts keep me much better looking and in better health.
