Lipoma Treatment in PCMC
Lipoma is a medical condition in which a lump develops under the skin due to overgrowth of fat cells inside the body. Usually, these lumps are non-cancerous, but if not treated on the initial stage, they hold the potential to become cancerous and fatal.
At Alpha Hospital, our skin specialists perform diagnosis and tests to confirm the complexity of lipoma. We recommend a surgery when the lipoma is
- A cancerous
- Growing faster and bigger
- Causing pain and discomfort
- Unable to verify if it’s a lipoma or a tumour
The surgical procedure is performed under the guidance of a panel of medical professionals. The lump is removed using an incision or liposuction. Depending on the severity of your case, the doctors will recommend the type of treatment approach. Talk to our doctors and find if your lipomas are just benign or cancerous to get the proper medical attention on time.
