Fast growing lipoma

Post by mskrissi87 » Sun Mar 02, 2014 10:02 pm

Around a year ago I was getting a shoulder massage. Noticed a small soft lump in my shoulder that was only viewable at times and seemed to get aggravated by touch. Doctor said it was a lipoma. Now a year later its more then doubled in size and is about the size of my palm on my left upper shoulder next to my spine. My orthopedic doctor seemed concerned and wanted it checked out. I'm getting tests done tomorrow.
1. Anyone else have one that doubled in size in only one year?
2. Can it connect to spine? Hurts near my spine.
Any opinions or similar stories would be great! Thanks!

Don't know if it can attach to the spine, but my chirpractor was concerned about mine pressing against my spine and causing problems, so I had it removed by a plastic surgeon. (I'd had it about 10 years I think) Part of the scar healed up nicely and part of it still looks bad after 15 years, and is visible if I try to wear anything with a low back. :( I now have a huge one where my right leg joins my torso, must be the size of a goose egg or bigger, and has probably doubled in size in the last year. When I first noticed it about 4 yrs ago, it was maybe the size of a small chicken egg. My doctor still says it should be ok unless it starts pressing against the artery that runs down there. It's not painful, just disfiguring. I also have multiple smaller ones all over my body that have stayed pretty much the same size for a long time, but have recently started to grow. None of those hurt except one that's on my upper chest about a couple of inches in from my arm, that one sometimes gets very tender and hurts.

RinAR: What country are you in? I can't see that any chicken egg sized lump is OK. Those problems should be taken care of when they are small. You don't want to HAVE to do something when it's a bowling ball size and hurting you.

We should stay away from processed foods and eat more healthy. Stay with a low calorie diet because in my opinion these are excess fat that body can't process.
