According to experts of traditional medicine, treatment of a lipoma is only effective provided that they are surgical removal. With this approach strongly disagree supporters of folk and other non-traditional methods of treatment.

Do I need to remove lipomas?

The answer to the question about the necessity of removal of lipomas is controversial. Nobody wants to go under the knife, especially if there are non-surgical ways of getting rid of the problem. But doctors argue that such ways exist. All of them are inclined to think that no compresses from the pharmacy or folk remedies (Vishnevsky ointment, iodine, cinnamon, ivy, etc.) and other methods of alternative medicine (leeches, hydrogen peroxide, etc.) do not cure and even reduce in size the lump.
