There are several types of lumps that you can find on your skin. A painless, round shaped lump with rubbery tissues is most likely a lipoma. This type of lump moves when you touch it and is smaller than 2 inches in diameter. If you have any questions or concerns, be sure to consult with your doctor.
The doctor will first look at the lump to see if it is a lipoma or liposarcoma. Lipomas are skin-colored lumps that are not cancerous, while liposarcomas are cancerous lumps.
The doctor will touch the lipoma to see if it moves. They will also check if the lipoma is causing pain. Though lipomas are usually painless, they can sometimes form over blood vessels and compress them which can cause pain and discomfort.
The doctor may order lab tests to accurately identify the condition if pain is present.
