Thank you

Soft lumps that have lasted this long without much progression are either sebaceous cysts or lipomas. If this lump is superficial and seems attached to the skin then it is a sebaceous cyst. If it is deeper to the skin and moves under it then this is a lipoma.

Both these entities are benign and can be left alone or taken out surgically. The procedure is done under local or regional anesthesia and is a day care procedure.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned my 5-star rating today!

oh okay. it is definitely very soft and not fixed. u think i need MRI to rule out liposarcoma?? I am worried.

That will be an overkill at this point time for a lesion that is movable, soft and has been quiescent for 2 years. I do not think this is a liposarcoma and that it needs an MRI. However, I have not personally examined it and it is best to get an opinion from your PCP if you have such concerns.

Thank you for the rating.

Have a good one!

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
