How do lipomas occur?
A lipoma is a slow-growing, fatty lump but the cause of lipomas isn’t fully understood. They tend to run in families and could be due to genetic factors. Lipomas can occur more frequently in people with specific medical conditions such as Gardner’s syndrome, Cowden syndrome, Madelung’s disease and adiposis dolorosa.
