LIPOMA

Homeopathic Treatment of a Lipoma

Treatment of lipomas with allopathy

In general, lipoma is left untreated, because there is no known method of treating it or because it does not cause any known harm.

Doctors and patients opt for surgical removal, if there is a large or small, single lipoma and if it disturbs functioning. For small lipomas, nowadays, liposuction is often preferred, due to minimal scarring. However, most of the large ones are excised only with surgical incisions.

Even when removed, there are usually recurrences. Liposuction has a higher recurrence rate due to left residuals, whereas in surgical incisional removal, since it is removed completely, including the capsule, the recurrence rate is less.

Homeopathic treatment for lipomas

Lipoma is a cosmetic illness. Does surgical excision cure the condition? No! So, never go for surgical options to get it removed, unless it gives any persistent symptoms due to localized pressure. Usually surgical removal causes it to spread to other places for unknown reasons. So, surgeons never assure non recurrence in the same or other places.

Even though nobody thinks of homeopathy for lipomas, considering it as a pure surgical disorder, homeopathy can treat a lipoma or lipomas (lipomata) very effectively. Homeopathic treatment easily arrests new lipoma formation and continued growth of existing lipomas. There will also be reduction in the size of the lipoma to residuals, i.e., swelling gets softened and flattened, so that visibility can be reduced. Better results can be attained if treatment is started earlier - just after the diagnosis.

If the lipoma is in the initial stages, it will disappear completely. The treatment procedure will be a slow but gradual and continuous process.

In homeopathy, removal of lipoma by surgery is considered removal of the effects of the disease and not removal of the cause or disease itself and so, there will be recurrence of the lipoma. Homeopathic treatment can abort this tendency of recurrence of lipomas by improving the natural healing processes.

There are 22 homoeopathic medicines which give great relief in lipomas. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the homeopathic doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus, homeopathic remedies for lipomas (lipomata) are tailor made, unlike allopathy, in which all patients receive the similar kind of surgical procedures.

What is a Lipoma ?
Top

A lipoma is a growth of fat cells in a thin fibrous capsule, usually found just below the skin. Lipomas are the most common non cancerous tissue growth.

Incidence : Even though lipoma can occur at any age, it is more commonly seen in the 3rd or 4th decade of life. Women suffer more than men and usually from a single lipoma, rather than multiple lipomas. In the case of men, it is mostly multiple. There is a condition called adiposa dolorosa, in which there can be multiple lipomas / lipomatas, which can run in families. Childhood (congenital) lipomas are mostly inherited and are rare.

Common sites : Lipomas / lipomata can occur anywhere on the body. The common occurrence sites are fat depositing areas like nape of the neck, shoulder, back, trunk, buttocks, hips, thighs, arms, forearms and belly (abdomen muscles). Mostly lipoma is subcutaneous, but it can also occur in deeper tissues like subserous (liver, lungs, heart and so on), subsynovial (joints), submucous (oral, esophagus), subperitoneal (inside abdomen), intramuscular and so on.

What Causes a Lipoma ?
Top

The cause of lipomas / lipomata is not completely understood, but the tendency to develop them is inherited. A minor injury may trigger the growth. Some people think that the lipoma is due to excess fat content of the body or obesity and so they keep on doing exercise and restrict their diet to reduce weight, but even after reducing weight considerably, there won't be any change in the lipoma/s. In fact, sometimes they are even more noticeable, with more visibility or prominence than before, since they might have been hidden by the fat around, earlier. So, being overweight does not cause lipomas.

What are the Symptoms of Lipomas ?
Top

Lipomas usually :

  • are small (0.4 inches to 1.2 inches) and are felt just under the skin
  • are movable and have a soft, rubbery consistency
  • do not cause pain
  • remain the same size over years or grow very slowly

Often the most bothersome symptom is the location or increased size, that makes the lipoma noticeable by others.

How are Lipomas Diagnosed ?
Top

A lipoma can usually be diagnosed by its appearance alone. If there is any doubt, your doctor may do other tests such as removal of a tissue sample (biopsy) for examination in a laboratory to make sure the growth is noncancerous.
