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 sub-types of lipomas, such as, fibrolipoma (fat with fibrous tissue), angiolipoma (fat with blood vessels), and hibernoma (brown fat instead of the white fat).
