Lipoma. Close-up of a large swelling seen on the neck of a 78 year-old man caused by lipoma. Lipoma is a benign tumour of fatty tissue, usually occurring on the thigh, trunk or shoulder of a patient. Lipomas are slow growing, resulting in soft swellings that are painless and harmless. Treatment, for cosmetic reasons, involves surgical removal.
