Lipomas are not painful and have a mushy and rubbery texture.How to treat You must be aware that lipomas aren’t cancer and cannot become cancer. They can be found anywhere on your body, but are usually located on the upper parts, such as the neck, arms and armpits, torso and sometimes on your upper thighs.
If you happen to have lipomas you don’t have to get them removed but sometimes they can increase or start causing you pain and discomfort. In that case you might resort to some treatment or their removal. Homemade treatment There are certain herbs and natural oils which can be mixed into an effective combination for the treatment of skin lumps. You can use Neem and flax seed oil as the base for your cream in combination with some other natural ingredients.
The medicinal properties of Neem have been used by the ancient Indians as a cure for skin lumps for a long time. It’s very effective in protecting your skin.
