How do I get rid of lipomas?
Mar 3, 2013


Could you please tell me, is there a safer non surgical way of getting rid of lipomas that develop under the skin? I have a few of these fat bumps and they are quite irritating. They are painless but I am so self-conscious of these things.

I heard that apple cider vinegar could help, I have been taking it for some time now but still found no results.

Please help.

Response from Dr. Henry

Unfortunately I am not aware of any form of medication or non-surgical interventions that have proven safe and effective long term for decreasing size, number of lipomas.KH
