What Are Lipomas and Moles?

Lipomas are soft, fatty growths beneath the skin that are usually harmless but sometimes uncomfortable or unsightly. Moles, on the other hand, are common skin growths that vary in color and size. While typically benign, they can sometimes become bothersome or worrisome. Removal techniques vary from simple excisions for small moles to more complex surgical procedures for larger or deeper lipomas.
