Lipomas are common.
A GP will usually be able to tell if the lump is a lipoma.
If there's any doubt, they may refer you for a scan to check it out.
In rare cases, lumps under your skin can be a sign of something more serious.
Lipomas are harmless. They're not usually treated on the NHS.
You can pay a private clinic to remove a lipoma, but it may be expensive.
A GP can give you advice about where to get treatment.
