Caption: Lipoma of the oesophagus, clinical specimen. A lipoma is a benign tumour that forms from fat cells. Lipomas are most common in the skin, and are rare in the gastrointestinal tract. A large lipoma can obstruct the passage of digested food, requiring the surgical removal of the tumour. In rare cases a lipoma may turn cancerous, when it is termed a liposarcoma.
