A lipoma is a swelling of fat that grows in your body's soft cells. It's one of the most common tumor to create under your skin. About 1 individual out of every 1,000 will get one eventually. When you continue the lipoma, it may feel doughy. Middle-aged men and women have a tendency to get them more. Lipomas often turn up after an injury, though physicians don't know whether that's what makes them form. Some people who have a rare problem called Madelung's disease can get them. This frequently affects men of Mediterranean origins that have alcohol use disorder. You must see your GP if: you get a swelling anywhere on your body; your swelling is agonizing, red or hot; your lump is hard and does not move. If the lump is a lipoma, your GP will usually be able to inform. In uncommon cases, lumps under your skin can be a sign of something more significant. Lipomas are harmless. They: feel squishy and soft; can be anything from the size of a pea to a couple of centimetres across; may move slightly under your skin if you press them; are not usually agonizing; grow slowly.
