Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 7 months ago

Ok.

Very likely these are benign growths in the fatty layer of skin

they are called lipomas

they are very common and nothing to worry about

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
