Caption: Lipoma of the caecum. Light micrograph of a section through tissue from the caecum, showing fat cells (white, left) from a lipoma. A lipoma is a benign tumour that forms from fat cells. Lipomas are most common in the skin, and are rare in the intestinal tract. The caecum is part of the large intestine. A large lipoma can obstruct the passage of digested food through the intestine, requiring the surgical removal of the tumour. In rare cases a lipoma may turn cancerous, when it is termed a liposarcoma.
