A lipoma is a growth of fatty tissue in a thin, fibrous capsule that slowly develops just below the skin. These are noncancerous soft tissue growth. Although lipomas can form on any part of the body but are found most often on the neck, upper thighs, upper arms, torso, and armpits. People of any age can develop a lipoma, but it is very rare in case of children.
A lipoma is normally be soft to the touch and can move easily if prodded with finger as it’s made up of fatty tissues. However, they generally have a slow growth. The lipoma is mostly painless but it can be painful if it grows into nerves below the skin. Though this condition can affect people of any age but it is most prevalent in adults between the ages of 40 and 60.
Although the exact cause of lipomas is not completely known yet, but the tendency to develop this condition is inherited. The risk of developing lipomas increases if there is a family history of lipomas. Moreover, a minor injury might prompt the growth. Apart from it, there are certain health conditions that can also increase the risk of developing lipoma.
Here are four major health problems that can give rise to development of lipoma…
One of the health conditions that increase the risk of lipomas is Adiposis dolorosa. It is a rare condition that is mainly characterized by the growth of multiple, painful benign or fatty tumors in the adipose tissue. The tumors are generally quite painful and found in a great quantity on the extremities. This condition is also known as Anders disease or Dercum’s disease.
Cowden syndrome is another disorder that can give rise to lipomas. This disorder is also known as Cowden’s disease and multiple hamartoma syndromes and is characterized by numerous noncancerous, tumor-like growths that are called hamartomas, which increase the risk of developing certain cancers.
Lipomas can also be a result of Gardner’s syndrome. It is a rare genetic disorder that generally causes what start out to be noncancerous or benign growths. Gardner’s syndrome is one of the genetic disorders that can lead to growths on different areas of the body. Tumors caused by Gardner’s syndrome are mostly found in the colon, in facts sometimes in very large numbers. These tumours tend to increase with age. Gardner’s syndrome is a genetic condition, therefore, it’s inherited.
Multiple Symmetric Lipomatosis
The last health condition that increases the risk of Lipomas is Multiple symmetric lipomatosis. It is a rare condition that is characterized by the symmetric growth of fatty tumors around the shoulders, neck, upper arms or upper trunk. This condition mostly affects men of Mediterranean ancestry who are between the ages of 30 and 70 and have a history of alcohol abuse. However, non-alcoholics and women can also be affected with this disorder. The signs and symptoms of Multiple Symmetric Lipomatosis generally vary from person to person. Generally, the accumulation of fatty tissue increases with the passage of time and can also lead to a loss of neck mobility and pain.
