A lipoma is a benign fatty tumor that lies deep in the skin and appears as a soft lump. Occasionally, lipomas are tender to the touch but usually do not cause other symptoms. Lipomas may be small or quite large and develop in adults as single or multiple lesions, sometimes hereditary.

Surgery, liposuction, or Kybella are all removal options.
