I am a 26 year old guy. I work out, exercise, and probably lift about 4-5 days a week. I'm in decent shape, many would agree. Here's the problem.. I have Lipomas all over my body! They are about the size ranging from peanut to small grape. I have had one removed from each forearm. I have one on each calf! I get the. ( Oh i wouldnt notice it, unless you pointed it out) comment. I have counted about 6-8 on each thigh, upper leg, quad area. I have a small one on each buttock! One kinda behind the knee cap, and another very small one growin on top of my forearm, of which I can move around.. I dont' want these things... i don't want to have to cover up.. i want to wear shorts without being self conscious.. i dont' want to waste timing finding, and feeling them out all over my body throughout the day. I don't want these things to continue to Grow! Are they going to swamp my entire body? is it going to stop? I also itch in most of the areas.. I'll be sitting, working, or on computer, start itching my leg without thinking, and BAM what do i find?? a lipoma... anywho.. I've tried different remedies, different vitamins, flax seed, fish oil, lemons, castor oil application, massage oil, and try to eat healthy, drink lots of water, and exercise. I don't know what I'm doing, or what's wrong with me to why they keep appearing.
I hope someone finds a cure as I know many suffer worse than myself.
To whom it may concern, good luck, and god bless.

I'm sitting here with 3 large incisions on my stomach and it hurts really bad. The answer has to be within our body. Removing all the lipomas surgically is not cost effective, makes Doctors richer, and may not perminately remove the lipoma. Collectively we have to work towards a solution. I'm willing to do what I can.

I feel pretty much like you do, which is why we have this board! We all want to get rid of the fatty lumps so bad and the medical world is totally ignoring us. Frustrating as h...! But I think we are already on a right path here. There are many things going on atm, like Darryl who is proposing a natural treatment for lipomas (could still be a quackery though) and I'm starting to believe lipomas might be micobial origin that are capable of altering our DNA. Of course these are still just hypothises but there are many of us who are working for the treatments and cures.
There are also a number of medical studies on lipomatosis which show that it's possible to be totally cured.
Sooner or later it will happen, so just hang in there lumpyone!
i am 28 years and i have multiple lipomas. it is small and big. it is lots of in numbers. i have counted on my both hand and it is around 10. please somebody help us. atleast i don't want to grow it in more. need help
jenny - anyone else in your family have lipoma?
Due to my weak insurance it would be out of pocket $1800 to get like 2-3 removed and it will be local surgery so I'm awake, it would hurt like hell, plus the needle shots, and there may be scarring whats the point!!!!!!
I went to doctors multiple times: all of them strongly recommend not to remove them as long as they do not bother you because the cause remains anyway and they appear again. One of them even said that he has same problem:) but he seemed not to worry at all:).
The last surgeon I went to proposed to take one for some analyses (gistological) to make sure they are not harmful. I got rid of one but a week later I found a new one on the back... So this was the first one and the last one i removed.
The best explanation I heard on the cause of lipomatosis is that this is inheritable. My Father doesn't have this disease, but my older brother has the same, even worse than me. He is 14 years older though.
Although the cause is on genetic level my personal opinion is that something triggers lipomatosis at age between 23-30. I have 3 guesses : Alcohol, toxins accumulated in body, intensive work-outs and unbalanced nutrition.
Understanding that there is no cure I just try to find some psychological reasons not to worry about lipomas. I believe that the more I worry - the worse it gets. We should try to forget about them and just enjoy life.
If they remain small it's one thing, but if they grow too quick eventually you'll need to remove them (more time to heal and possibly drain needed).
For me I try to get them removed if they are approaching 3cm then have a bunch removed at the same time.
I was worried about them, had one removed and analyzed but they came back and said it was not cancerous was nothing to worry about (it did not grow back and scar is difficult to see.) It was very frustrating and have expressed my concerns to my physician several times and he seems not worried about it. Mine range from small pea size to one on my left arm that is approx. 10-12 cm. I have had people ask it I have a muscle that no one else has. I would love to have them all removed, some on my back really hurt if I lay on a hard surface, but cannot imagine what the cost would be. I realize none of this helps but seemed like a good place to vent my frustration about the subject.
It may be nothing, it may be something somebody else can also try. For all we know it may be the answer everybody is desperate for.
Please do let me know if this truly is working for somebody else too...
