Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Has your doctor done a biopsy or imaging test to know it is lipoma.  Usually, A lipoma isn't cancer and is usually harmless. Treatment generally isn't necessary, but if the lipoma is in a location that bothers you, is painful or is growing, you may want to have it removed. 

Here's a link on Lipoma
