For most people, the mention of the words tumor or skin growth can cause alarm. However, not all tumors and skin growths need to strike you with fear. Lipoma is one such fatty tumor that is not cancerous and does not usually indicate future harm. If you notice skin growth or a tumor it’s important to contact Medical Dermatology Specialists right away so we can use our advanced medical dermatology treatments to determine what it is and if it is lipoma, we will offer you effective lipoma treatment and removal.

Lipoma slowly develops under your skin. It is fatty tissue that can form on any part of your body. They typically appear on your neck, shoulders, back, abdomen, arms and thighs. It is not typically painful unless it comes in contact with a nerve. Lipoma has some very distinct characteristics for you to look for.

Common Characteristics of Lipoma

  • Slow growing
  • Colorless
  • Soft to the touch
  • Located just under your skin
  • Can be moved easily if prodded
  • Pale in color

It is very important to get a proper diagnosis of any tumor you may have on your body. If it is determined that you have lipoma, you may need to get a biopsy to rule out any possibility of cancer. While lipoma is not cancerous, it can look very similar to liposaracoma, which is cancerous.

Contact Atlanta’s Lipoma Treatment Experts at Medical Dermatology Specialists so we can properly diagnose and treat your tumors.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
