WHAT IS LIPOMA?
A lipoma is generally soft to the touch, mobile, and often painless, making them largely unnoticeable and typically not requiring treatment. However, some individuals might find them bothersome due to their location or size. At MOD Dermatology, we offer expert consultation to evaluate your specific condition.

We dedicate ourselves to providing personalized care, addressing any concerns, and offering professional advice to each patient, ensuring they are well informed and comfortable throughout the process.
WHO IS MOST LIKELY TO GET A LIPOMA?
While a lipoma can develop in someone of any age, they are most common in those aged 40 to 60. It is found that lipomas generally run in the family, so genetics can also play a part. Those with the following characteristics are typically at a higher risk of lipomas:
- Liver disease
- Glucose intolerance
- Alcohol abuse
Even though most lipomas are harmless, a person may want them removed for cosmetic reasons or irritation. If this is the case, our certified dermatologists near Bellevue will remove the lipoma through a simple procedure.
Depending on the size and location of the tumor, surgical removal will be offered as an option for removal
