Causes Of Lipomas Reappear?
A few years ago around the age of 29, there was a bump on the back. The doctor says fat (lipoma). I asked to be appointed because it was already slightly swollen and sick. Now I am 37 years old, there are more lumps but on the shoulder, the signs are the same as in the past, initially small but these days have begun to feel rather painful and somewhat enlarged.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Lipomas are lumps of fat that grow on the skin and muscle layers. Characteristically, these lumps are round, soft when pressed and can be shaken. Lipomas are also painless to the touch. The cause of this condition is still unclear until now, so we cannot prevent it. But on the other hand, this condition is not dangerous, so in fact silence is okay.
Regarding your question, although it is rare, lipomas can indeed grow again, because lipomas are not a type of disease that is studied and can be prevented by the body like smallpox, for example. So it is very possible a person experiences lipoma more than once in his lifetime. But the reason why, that is still unknown until now.
Furthermore, what needs to be understood also is that even if you feel that the characteristics of the lump are the same as your past lipoma history, it is not impossible that it is a different lump. Among the conditions that appear to be similar to lipomas are:
Insect bite or sting
We suggest that you check your condition with the surgeon or doctor who used to treat you if possible, to be sure about the condition and the best treatment. For situations like this it is better to do a direct examination, so as to minimize the possibility of misunderstanding that can actually harm you.
Meanwhile, no need to worry, keep living a healthy lifestyle by staying away from cigarettes, maintaining ideal body weight, increasing consumption of vegetables, fruit and water, regular exercise according to ability, and do not squeeze or touch the lump. So, hopefully answering your question.
