What are the fatty tumors under the skin on the head?


Answer by  Milette (1105)

Also known as Lipomas, this is a soft nonpainful swelling in skin that slowly increases in size. Skin over lipomas remain healthy and normally the lipomas move freely over muscle and bone beneath them. Apart from the swelling, there are no other symptoms and this differentiates a lipoma from a malignant skin tumor.

These are called Lipomas, and are often ignored, because they are just that, fatty tumors. However, these can be malignant and any growth requires attention. Also, even if benign, if seated over a nerve, these tumors can cause great discomfort or impact normal function. Any growth is a heads up to consult a doctor, and I hope you will.

These could be polycystic tumors. They are not life-threating. They can be unsightly and the condtion can run in families. Some choose to have them removed.
