How is lipoma diagnosed?

As your caregiver examines you and the area around the suspected lipoma he/she may ask you about any signs or symptoms you may have had recently. Based on your caregivers recommendation you may need one or more of the following diagnosis methods:

  • An ultrasound: Using sound waves to look into the lipoma tissue.
  • An X-ray: This maybe used to look into muscular tissue and other internal areas of the body.
  • A CT or CAT scan: Using X-ray to look into the suspicious area where a lipoma maybe present.
  • An MRI scan: Using magnetism to take a picture of the lipoma and surrounding tissue.
  • A biopsy: Some tissue is removed from the lipoma and analyzed.

These are just some of the methods used to conclusively diagnose a lipoma.
