Most medically vetted articles will say that lipomas do not usually cause pain. However, reports from the community of lipoma sufferers suggest that pain is actually quite a common occurrence. Whether pain is felt or not really will depend on the location and size of the lipoma and its proximity to nerves, blood vessels, muscle tissue and organs.
Some also say that lipomas can cause itching and can emit foul smell. And for some people, painful lipomas can be a serious concern while sleeping. If a painful lipoma is located on your back, shoulder or thigh, it can cause a lot of pain in a sleeping position or while moving in your sleep. These are all valid claims but sometimes overlooked or undermined by medical professionals.
If a lipoma causes pain or discomfort, it is important that you seek medical advice and have it checked out by a doctor. As the lipoma grows, if pain is felt it probably means that its growing into an area were nerves maybe present and this can be a health concern if the lipoma continues to grow.
