Hello,Fatty deposits under the skin are known as lipomas. The cause of lipomas is not completely understood, but the tendency to develop them is inherited. A minor injury may trigger the growth. Most lipomas can be removed in the doctor's office or outpatient surgery center.Let me know if you have any other questions. If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
