Lump in forearm. Scared

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am 21 years old and I have a lump about the size of a dime in my right forearm. I noticed it about 9 months ago and it may have gotten bigger. It doesn't move that well and it's relatively hard. My dad and my doctor said about 9 months ago that it is probably a lipoma, as it runs in my family. My dad has had over a dozen lipomas in his life. I also have another lump next to my left pectoral that has been there about 10 years so I think that is a lipoma. Could this lump in my arm be that?

    If it is lipoma try taking tumeric supplement as this reduces size and discomfort. Have had loads removed by surgery but by chance took tumeric for knee pain and found it reduces lipomas quite alot. Been taking daily tumeric capsules from amazon for about 2 years and have not had any new lipomas appear and old ones reducing in size. Worth giving it a try. Cheers
