A lipoma is a benign lump underneath the skin surface, which may have a similar appearance to a cyst. A punctum is not present overlying a lipoma and is a distinguishing feature. A lipoma consists of benign fat cells and may increase in size over time. If a lipoma changes in appearance or new symptoms develop (such as pain or tingling), it is important to present to your primary care physician for clinical assessment. If interested in proceeding with elective lipoma removal, this may be performed under local anesthetic.
