Lipoma is the name used for the occurrence of a small fatty lump that forms between the skin and the underlying muscle layer. It can be easily detected by touch and it is not cancerous. Usually more than one lipoma appears, and that condition is called adiposa dolorosa. Middle age is the period when lipomas are most common, although they may develop at any age. They are more frequent in women than in men.
Causes and symptoms of lipoma
The main cause for the appearance of lipoma is not found yet, although there are some clues that this condition can be inherited and that genetic factors can contribute to the appearance of lipomas. It is not true that they appear because of the excessive fat, since they have nothing to do with obesity. The most frequent places where lipomas appear are neck, back, shoulders, arms and tights. They are small, soft, doughy to the touch, and usually they are not painful, unless they become too large and make pressure to the certain nerves.
Treatment of lipoma
In most cases lipomas are not harmful and do not cause any problems and complications. Usually before diagnosis, a biopsy is performed in order to establish that the grown tissue is not cancerous. However, in the case when a large single lipoma appears, a surgery such as liposuction is done, because it hardly leaves a scar. If many lipomas appear, then incisional removal is recommended. It is not unusual that lipomas develop again in the same place. Therefore, the surgeries for the lipoma removal are not recommended.
Homeopathic treatment for lipoma
To successfully treat lipomas, there are several homeopathic remedies which are very effective. These remedies prevent the growth of another lipoma in the place where one is already destroyed. Furthermore, the homeopathic remedies for lipoma decrease the swelling of lipoma, and thus the lipoma is hardly visible. The homeopathic doctors usually prescribe one of 22 homeopathic medicines, depending on the case. Calc ars, Calc carb, Calc flour, Lapis alb, Radium brom, Silicea, Spigelia and Thuja are some of the homeopathic remedies that are regarded to be very beneficial for the treatment of lipoma. Moreover, there is also an alternative therapy called Auroh homeopathic treatment for lipoma, which is one of the most harmless and effective treatments. This kind of treatment may last longer than all the other treatments, but it is very helpful. In this treatment the fat is decreased and further growth is prevented.
