Understanding Lipoma: A Comprehensive Guide


Lipoma, a commonly occurring benign tumor composed of adipose tissue, manifests as a soft, rubbery, slow-growing, fatty lump beneath the skin and the underlying muscle layer. While typically painless and non-threatening, lipomas can vary in size and may occur in different areas of the body.

Types of Lipoma


Subcutaneous Lipoma: The most common type of lipoma, subcutaneous lipomas develop just beneath the skin and are often soft, movable, and painless to the touch. They can occur anywhere on the body but are most frequently found on the neck, shoulders, back, abdomen, and arms.

Types of Lipoma


Intramuscular Lipoma: These lipomas develop within muscle tissue and may present as deeper, firmer lumps compared to subcutaneous lipomas. While less common than subcutaneous lipomas, they can cause discomfort or restricted movement if they press against surrounding muscles or nerves.

Types of Lipoma


Intradermal Lipoma: Intradermal lipomas are confined to the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin. They typically appear as small, dome-shaped lumps and are often found on the scalp, face, or neck. Intradermal lipomas are usually soft and mobile, similar to subcutaneous lipomas.

Types of Lipoma


Spindle Cell Lipoma: Spindle cell lipomas are a rare variant of lipoma that contain elongated spindle-shaped cells. They often occur on the back, neck, or shoulders and may be firmer in texture compared to typical lipomas. Spindle cell lipomas are more commonly seen in men and tend to occur in middle-aged or older individuals.

Types of Lipoma


Angiolipoma: Angiolipomas are lipomas that contain a significant amount of blood vessels. They may appear reddish or purplish in color and can be tender or painful to the touch. Angiolipomas are most commonly found on the trunk, arms, or upper thighs.

Types of Lipoma


Fibrolipoma: Fibrolipomas contain fibrous tissue in addition to adipose tissue and may feel firmer than typical lipomas. They are often found in the oral cavity, particularly on the buccal mucosa (inside of the cheeks) or the floor of the mouth.

Ann's Story

Here's my story.

If you feel skeptical or unsure of Chinese herbal remedies, I could hardly blame you. I wasn't a believer either until my daughter grew very sick and my father (the 4th generation herbalist) helped her get better with herbs.

I was born into a family of herbalists. My father, my grandfather, my great-grandfather, great-great grandfather were all herbalists. I represent the 5th generation in this long lineage dating back to Imperial China.

When I was three or four years old, I started to learn herbal songs and how to identify herbs. As I got older, I was taught how to process the herbs while working in my dad’s clinic in Vietnam. After we immigrated to the United States, my dad asked me if I wanted to pursue a career in TCM as an herbalist or acupuncturist. I said, “No, just leave me alone, Dad. I will find something I enjoy doing for work.” So, he left me alone to find my own way.

I wanted nothing to do with herbal medicine until I gave birth to my second daughter, Catherine, who was born with severe gastric reflux. When Catherine was 10 days old, I had to take her to the ER for IV injections into her little hand because she couldn’t keep milk down. Besides vomiting, she also was having diarrhea. Catherine was losing nutrition from both ends, so her tiny body was shrinking. At that time my dad warned me, “She needs to be treated with herbal medicine, otherwise she will have seizures later on.” I didn’t fully understand what my dad was talking about, so I ignored him.

My daughter got so ill that she could only take half an ounce of milk per hour. Before feeding her, I would use a syringe and shoot Zantac into her mouth to lessen the vomiting. As time passed, she needed milk more often, and consequently more Zantac. By the time Catherine was 8 months old, she needed to be fed and medicated 11 times a day.

I could hardly sleep, eat, shower or rest. Even at night, I had to drape my daughter over my shoulder for her to sleep. If I put Catherine down, she would vomit. I barely had time to squeeze in a 5-minute shower once or twice a week for myself. I was exhausted, but what could I do? I had to care for my daughter and do my best to survive each day with the hope that she would get better or at the very least her condition would not worsen.

Catherine had to wear a turtleneck with two sweaters along with a baby cap and scarf to be outside during the heat of summer, even when temperatures were 100 plus degrees. If I didn’t cover her up, she would have a runny nose, cough, and non stop vomiting. How will she be able to go to school or anywhere with air conditioning?

One day we went to a Vietnamese pho restaurant. After I set Catherine down into the high-chair, I turned around and adjusted my chair. Then I heard a woman’s shout, “Look at her!” I looked in the direction she pointed. It was Catherine…her eyes rolled up and her entire body stiff and shaking with fluid coming out of her mouth. Someone said, “Squeeze some lemon into her mouth.” I did it without hesitating and Catherine’s body relaxed.

We rushed her to the ER. For 3 days she was in the NICU where they monitored her brain. The doctors told me I was lucky because my daughter’s seizure didn’t last for more than 3 minutes which would have damaged her brain. After that I always carried a piece of lemon because I had no idea when my baby girl might have another seizure.

The seizures started to come weekly, so the doctor prescribed anti-seizure medication. Catherine wasn’t even 1 year of age, and already she was taking Zantac 11 times plus anti-seizure medicine 3 times a day. It was nearly impossible to administer the anti-seizure medicine because whenever I took out the syringe, she would cry and start vomiting.

I took Catherine to see a specialist at CHOC. I asked, “Doctor, have you ever seen any infant with this condition get well?” The doctor replied, “It depends. Some will grow out of it, but some don’t. If they don’t, then they will have to take medication for the rest of their life.”

“What do you mean by grow out of it?” The doctor explained that Catherine might get better by herself as she got older.

My mind was racing. “All this time the prescribed medication has not been treating her stomach?” The doctor said, “No, it only helps to guide the food down, so she won’t vomit it back up. That’s why you have to give it to her before the feeding.”

“Well, what if she doesn’t grow out of it?” In that case, Catherine will be dependent upon medication for the rest of her life. The doctor further informed me that she too was born with gastro reflux and is still taking medicine for the condition.

Her statement was like lightning in my brain. If the doctor can’t even treat herself for gastro reflux, how can she help my daughter? Seeing the futility of my path, I turned to my dad for help.

My dad advised me to stop all western drugs and to give her an herbal prescription 3 times a day. Administering medicine 3 times instead of 14 times a day to Catherine was a godsend to me. Even though it sounded too good to be true, I figured that I could still give Zantac to Catherine if she didn’t get better or continued to vomit.

After one month of herbs 3 times a day, Catherine vomited less and less. To test Catherine, I let her cry to see if she would vomit. She didn’t, so I knew she was getting better. After another month of herbal medicine, Catherine was able to wear less clothing without getting a runny nose, coughing, or vomiting. After 3 months of herbal formulas, she stopped having episodes of gastro reflux and seizure. Catherine will enjoy a normal, healthy life.

Because of Catherine’s dramatic recovery, I was sold on Chinese medicine and asked my dad to treat me. I fainted very easily, especially during the winter. After a few months of herbal formulas, I have never fainted again.

I started to have time to think and tried to understand why a piece of lemon helps to relax the muscles and stop a seizure. Lemon is a common citrus, yet it has magical powers that we don’t understand and underestimate. I wanted to learn more and find answers, so I decided to go to China which has a long history of herbal medicine. I went to TCM schools in China and Hong Kong and worked in the TCM hospitals to learn from the best herbal doctors in the world.

When I was there, I knew one day I would want to become an herbalist, but how can I get a steady supply of high-quality herbs. My dad and I backpacked across China and visited many farmlands. We interviewed farmers to grow herbs for us. Our products are used with the highest quality herbs that have been harvested at the height of their potency. They are substantially more expensive than less potent herbs that were harvested in the pre- or post-season.

After I came back to the United State, I worked with my dad and learned from his experiences and studied the formulas that our ancestors passed down. What I have been through helped me to understand the importance of health. Without health, don’t even talk about career, beauty, education, freedom, etc. I now have worked with many families who have suffered as I have. Their endearing appreciation drives me to work harder.

Our namesake "Silkie" is a Chinese breed of chicken that is well known for its calm and friendly temperament. They are gentle and caring and make wonderful mothers. A Silkie loves nothing more than brooding a cluster of eggs, whether they are hers or not, even if they are "duck eggs". We share the same outlook and care for our clients the same way we care for our own family.

Western Medicine Perspective on Lipoma


In Western medicine, lipomas are generally considered benign tumors composed of adipose (fat) tissue. Here's an overview of the Western medicine perspective on lipomas:

Causes


The exact cause of lipomas is often unknown. However, they are believed to result from an overgrowth of fat cells within the body. Genetic factors, hormonal imbalances, and certain medical conditions may contribute to their development. While most lipomas are not associated with any underlying health problems, some rare genetic disorders, such as familial multiple lipomatosis, may predispose individuals to develop multiple lipomas.

Symptoms


Lipomas typically present as soft, movable lumps beneath the skin. They are usually painless but may cause discomfort if they press against nearby nerves or tissues. The size of lipomas can vary from small pea-sized nodules to larger masses several centimeters in diameter. Lipomas are generally slow-growing and may remain stable in size over time or gradually increase in size.

Diagnosis


Diagnosing a lipoma typically involves a physical examination by a healthcare provider. In some cases, imaging tests such as ultrasound, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), or CT (computed tomography) scans may be used to confirm the diagnosis or evaluate the size and location of the lipoma. In rare instances where there is uncertainty about the diagnosis or concern about malignancy, a biopsy may be performed to examine the tissue under a microscope.

Treatment


In many cases, lipomas do not require treatment unless they cause symptoms or cosmetic concerns. However, if a lipoma is bothersome or enlarges significantly, surgical removal may be recommended. Lipoma removal is usually performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. The surgeon makes an incision over the lipoma, removes the fatty tissue, and closes the incision with sutures. In some cases, liposuction may be used to remove smaller lipomas. Recurrence of lipomas after surgical removal is uncommon but can occur.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Perspective on Lipoma


In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), lipomas are viewed as the accumulation of damp phlegm beneath the skin, resulting in painless lumps of various sizes across different areas of the body. This condition typically manifests as soft, smooth, and movable masses that are neither red nor hot. Lipomas are often found in regions such as the neck, chin, limbs, shoulders, and back. Unlike inflammatory conditions, lipomas usually do not cause pain or discomfort and do not progress into ulcers or discharge pus upon manipulation.

Cause


  1. Spleen Deficiency and Phlegm-Dampness: Weakness in the Spleen function coupled with the accumulation of Dampness and Phlegm in the body can lead to the formation of lipomas.
  2. Wind and Phlegm Stagnation: Obstruction of Qi and Blood flow by Wind and Phlegm can result in the stagnation of these substances, contributing to the development of lipomas.
  3. Damp-Heat Stagnation: Imbalance characterized by excessive Dampness and Heat in the body can lead to the stagnation of fluids, fostering the growth of lipomas.
  4. Qi and Blood Stagnation: Blockages or disruptions in the flow of Qi and Blood can cause these vital substances to accumulate, leading to the formation of lipomas.
  5. Spleen and Kidney Deficiency: Weakness or deficiency in the Spleen and Kidneys, which play vital roles in fluid metabolism, may predispose individuals to the development of lipomas.

Syndrome Analysis


Spleen Deficiency and Phlegm-Dampness: 

  • Characteristics: This syndrome is characterized by the presence of painless subcutaneous nodules, primarily in the neck area but also observed in other regions like the arms, shoulders, and back. While there might be slight pain, significant swelling or redness is typically absent.
  • Manifestations: Patients may experience soft and mobile nodules resembling fruit pits, indicating a buildup of damp phlegm beneath the skin. Symptoms are often localized and do not involve systemic inflammation or redness.
  • Treatment Approach: The treatment strategy involves strengthening the Spleen, resolving dampness, and softening hardness. Herbal medicines containing Chinese herbs like Kelp, Forsythia, and Red Tangerine Peel may be prescribed to address these imbalances and promote the dissipation of nodules.

Syndrome Analysis


Wind and Phlegm Stagnation:

  • Characteristics: This syndrome shares similarities with Spleen deficiency and phlegm-dampness but may include additional manifestations such as headaches, dizziness, fatigue, chest tightness, nausea, and changes in facial color.
  • Manifestations: In addition to subcutaneous nodules, patients may experience symptoms of wind and phlegm stagnation affecting various organ systems. Headaches, dizziness, and fatigue may indicate systemic disturbances related to stagnant Qi and Blood circulation.
  • Treatment Approach: Treatment aims to dispel wind, resolve phlegm, and soften hardness. Herbal formulations containing herbs with dispersing and resolving properties, such as Honeylocust Spine, Divaricate Saposhnikovia Root may be prescribed to address these symptoms and promote overall balance and well-being.

Syndrome Analysis


Damp-Heat Stagnation:

  • Characteristics: Patients with damp-heat stagnation may exhibit symptoms similar to the previous syndromes, with additional signs of heat such as red urine, yellow and greasy tongue coating, and a rapid pulse.
  • Manifestations: In addition to subcutaneous nodules and symptoms of wind and phlegm stagnation, patients may present with signs of internal heat and inflammation. Red urine, a greasy tongue coating, and a rapid pulse may indicate the presence of damp-heat in the body.
  • Treatment Approach: Treatment aims to address the dampness related to heat, resolve phlegm, and soften hardness. Modified herbal formulas incorporating heat-clearing and dampness-drying herbs, such as Scute and Poria, may be prescribed to alleviate symptoms and restore balance to the body's internal environment.

Syndrome Analysis


Qi and Blood Stagnation:.

  • Characteristics: When the flow of Qi (vital energy) and Blood in the body is obstructed or disrupted, stagnant energy and fluids may accumulate. This stagnation can be caused by various factors such as emotional stress, physical trauma, or a sedentary lifestyle.
  • Manifestations: Over time, the stagnant Qi and Blood may coalesce, forming palpable lumps beneath the skin known as lipomas.
  • Implications: Qi and Blood stagnation can lead to various symptoms beyond lipomas, including pain, stiffness, and irregular menstruation in women.
  • Treatment Approach: TCM treatment aims to invigorate Qi and Blood circulation, resolve stagnation, and promote the smooth flow of energy throughout the body. Herbal formulas and acupuncture are commonly used to address these underlying imbalances.

Syndrome Analysis


Spleen and Kidney Deficiency: 

  • Characteristics: The Spleen and Kidneys are vital in TCM for the metabolism and transportation of fluids in the body. Deficiency or weakness in these organ systems can disrupt fluid balance, predisposing individuals to the formation of lipomas.
  • Manifestations: Spleen deficiency may lead to poor digestion and absorption of nutrients, resulting in the accumulation of Dampness and Phlegm. Kidney deficiency, characterized by a lack of foundational energy or Yin and Yang imbalances, can further contribute to lipoma development.
  • Implications: Besides lipomas, Spleen and Kidney deficiency may manifest as fatigue, digestive issues, and reproductive health issues.
  • Treatment Approach: TCM treatment focuses on tonifying the Spleen and Kidneys, regulating fluid metabolism, and addressing underlying deficiencies. Herbal remedies, dietary modifications, and lifestyle changes are integral parts of the treatment strategy.
