How to get rid of lipoma on the back
Lipoma (adipose) is a neoplasm, which modern medicine refers to benign. It occurs in the fatty subcutaneous tissues and can be no more than a pea, and can grow to the size of a walnut and more. The reasons for its appearance can be hormonal disruptions, metabolic disorders, blockage of the sebaceous glands and other factors. Be that as it may, the lipoma on the back is primarily a cosmetic defect and, in its normal state, does not pose a threat to life.
Symptoms of lipoma formation
At the initial stage of the formation of a wen at the examination of the skin, a slight thickening is detected. To the touch it is most often soft and elastic, it can move slightly in the subcutaneous layer. In the future, the nodule increases in size, compacted due to the formation of a capsule of connective tissue. During growth, it can change color depending on how many blood vessels are involved in its structure.
Types of limes
In composition, Wen are divided into:
lipofibromas, in the structure of which there is only fatty tissue;
fibrolipomas, which are seals of adipose tissue, enclosed in a capsule of connective tissue;
myolipoma. These neoplasms affect muscle fibers and because of this, they acquire a more pronounced relief;
angiolipomas. The structure of such wen includes a large number of blood vessels, due to which they acquire a reddish or bluish tint;
petrified lipomas containing calcium;
ossified lipomas, with the development of which bone fragments begin to form inside.
All these and other types of Wen must be under constant observation. Control of their size and condition allows to take timely measures in cases when medical intervention is necessary.
How to get rid of lipomas
In cases where the tumor does not create discomfort and does not cause pain, it is recommended not to resort to surgical methods of treatment. But if the skin around the seal becomes inflamed, if there is pain when pressing on the nodule or if the neoplasm quickly grows in size, this is the reason for a visit to the doctor.
It is said that the treatment of wen with drugs, as a rule, is not effective. Oral medications do not reach the neoplasm in sufficient concentration for therapeutic effect. The absorbable ointments applied to the skin also do not have a significant effect on the lipoma.
The most effective way to get rid of the subcutaneous seals is their surgical removal. Traditionally, these manipulations were performed with local anesthesia by incision with a scalpel and mechanical removal of overgrown adipose tissue. But after such a procedure, painful stitches remained, and then ugly scars, after the operation the patient needed a rehabilitation period. With the advent of laser technology, removing lipoma has become much easier.
Advantages of laser removal of lipomas
The advantages of using a laser include:
minimal discomfort for the patient;
rapid removal of a neoplasm without blood;
effective removal of all affected tissues and disinfection of the treated area;
no need for stitches;
lack of scars and scars.
