What is lipoma(s)?

Lipomas are the most common soft-tissue tumor. These slow-growing, benign fatty tumors form soft, lobulated masses. There are various subtypes of lipomas, such as, fibrolipoma (fat with fibrous tissue), angiolipoma (fat with blood vessels), and hibernoma (brown fat instead of the white fat).
