Lipomatosis is a hereditary condition where a person develops benign tumors ranging from a few millimeters in size to a few centimeters. Lipomas or benign tumors composed of fatty tissue are soft to the touch and usually painless. This rare condition usually does not usually necessitate any treatment unless the lipomas restrict movement. Ultrasound is now used to destroy the lipomas unlike the traditional method of surgical removal involving scarring. Lipomatosis is not life-threatening. But if the lipomas grow within the internal organs, it can lead to internal bleeding and ulceration.
