A lipoma is a fatty tumor composed of adipose (fat) tissue, and is usually benign. Typically, these tumors take the form of a lump that forms just under the surface of the skin. Lipomas are usually removed when the tumor becomes painful, tender, or enlarges.

Lipomas are best removed through a small incision made in the skin overlying the lipoma, removing the fatty tumor, and closing the wound.
