How to Treat a Lipoma?
Generally, the best preventative lipoma treatments are natural remedies, which involve adjustments in your diet, supplementation and lifestyle. However, if your lipoma grows to the point where it is causing you pain and discomfort or becomes a health or serious cosmetic concern, you may want to choose more aggressive forms of treatment under the advice of your caregiver. These treatment options may include any of the following:
- A steroid injection can be given into the lipoma to help it shrink in size.
- A liposuction procedure where your caregiver will use a needle to suck out the adipose tissue from your lipoma. A scope may also be used which contains a tiny camera to help the caregiver see and remove the fatty tissue from the lipoma. This is more often used for larger lipomas.
- A surgical procedure can be performed by a caregiver or surgeon, which will involve an incision in the skin while under anesthesia to numb the surgical site. The adipose tissue is removed and stitches are used to close the incision and a bandage is used to cover your wound. Surgical removal is often used on small lipomas.
Natural remedies are often a safe and desirable preventative treatment solution as lipomas are very slow growing and are usually not a health concern. By adjusting some elements in your diet and lifestyle, you can go a long way to treating your lipoma and preventing more lipomas from forming. There are a number of guides that have been written on the topic and are listed on our website. It will not hurt to read them and educate yourself on effective natural remedies for treating lipoma.
Other, more intrusive methods of treatment and removal can always be performed (at a cost) and it never hurts to pro-actively empower yourself with information that can be applied to your daily life with positive outcomes.
