Treatment of lipomas with allopathy
There are many limitations for treatment of lipoma in allopathy.
- There is no medical treatment for lipoma.
- Surgical excision does not cure the condition. The lesions can recur even after excision (in the same or other places).
Surgery is usually considered for cosmetic reason, and for any persistent symptoms due to localized pressure such as pain, irritation. Hence in most people lipoma is not treated if it does not cause any problem.
