Hello Contractor ,My name is***** and I will be helping you today. I am sorry that your question wan unanswered for very long.I am afraid surgery is the only option for lipoma which is enlarging. Liposuction is not the procedure of the choice as it has an high recurrence rate. There are no other alternative therapies like herbs or homeopathy which are not likely to be efficacious completely. An increasing lipoma needs a surgical removal.Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.

Dr. Arun PhophaliaI just asked you a question about the lipoma. You replied that liposuction has a high chance of reocurrence. My question is: Is liposuction safe, since the lipoma is below the inner crease of my arm, will the liposuction affect any nerves - or is liposuction safe? I am trying to avoid surgery, since I have hypothyroidism, and may be more at risk when being anesthesized.
