Lipoma, a benign tumour. Close-up of a large lipoma, a benign tumour of fatty tissue, found at the base of the neck of a patient. Lipomas are slow-growing, soft swellings that may develop anywhere in the body. They are painless and harmless and do not require any treatment, although they might be surgically removed for cosmetic reasons.
