Lipomas are noncancerous growths of fat cells that typically form just under the skin. They are usually slow-growing, soft to the touch, and move easily under the skin. Although they are typically not harmful, they can be bothersome or unsightly, depending on their size and location.
Symptoms of Lipomas
The most common symptom of a lipoma is the presence of a soft, smooth lump under the skin.
