Giant Lipoma on Woman’s Back Resembles a Breast

An amazing story of a woman letting her lipoma grow to epic size over the course of 10 years. Giant lipomas are not very common in people as they are often removed surgically long before they reach giant proportions – primarily for cosmetic reasons but in some cases for health concerns.

Lipoma’s are generally harmless and made up of fatty tissue encased in a membrane that over time may grow in size and accumulate fatty tissue. Lipoma’s have been reported to have a genetic link as they tend to be inherited but can also be stimulated by imbalances in the body’s chemical makeup or even infection by some microorganisms. The exact reason why lipoma’s form is still an area of debate and much research still needs to be done in order to understand why these lumps of fatty tissue appear and sometimes grow to giant proportions.

This particular woman who remains anonymous was a heavy smoker and doctors suspect that there maybe a link between her giant lipoma and her heavy smoking habit. It is unclear why she let it grow to this size without seeing a doctor early to have it removed. The woman is currently awaiting surgery to have the giant lump removed according to a press release on

Here are some images of the giant lipoma that grew to epic proportions on a woman’s back to resemble a woman’s breast.

Man Has To Live With Giant Lipoma On His Neck

One of the most serious cases of lipoma in years has recently came to public attention in a story published by The Sun. The tumor has a huge size. Actually, the massive tumor encircles the patient’s neck. And the most shocking thing about this story is that the man in cause has to live with this tumor, as he cannot afford paying for medical help.

Wang Zhixiang is suffering from lipoma, which is still a benign growth. The tumor is a soft lump formed below the skin. This lipoma is caused by an overgrowth of fat cells, as doctors claimed in Wang’s case. And that is not all. The tumor tends to spread around his body, affecting his back, legs, arms and stomach, too. Removing it as soon as possible is a must, but unfortunately Wang cannot afford to pay for the medical intervention.

Why has the huge size lipoma developed? According to Wang Zhixiang the tumor probably is a result of a hormone therapy he received back in 2005, after an accident he unfortunately suffered. As in most cases, lipomas are not harmful and do not tend to grow, no medical interventions are required. However, when lipomas tend to grow and become quite large, as the case for Wang Zhixiang, they need to be removed.

The growth is now 30 centimeters wide, but Wang Zhixiang, from Jilin city, Jilin province in China, must live with it. Even though the tumor is not cancerous, this is one of the most obvious cases in which lipoma has to be removed. As the tumor continues to grow, it will most likely affect Wang’s mobility, which already is quite limited. Living with such a tumor seems absolutely impossible and not only really shocking.

Hopefully, Wang Zhixiang will be able to raise the needed sum of money to have the medical intervention performed before new complications are developed.
