Wen on the body (lipoma) is a benign
a tumor that forms from adipose tissue cells. Most
solitary hypodermic lipomas are common, but there are also
multiple growths of lipomas in the subcutaneous tissue and muscle
fibers. Lipoma is benign (with minimal risk
malignancy) disease with slow growth.
As it progresses, the Wen increases in size and
the latter stages begins to cause the patient some inconvenience,
based on the location of the tumor, and when the disease
acquires a common character, forming on the body a lot
wen, limiting the mobility of limbs and causing
acute disorders of muscle activity and tissue blood supply. With
a significant increase in the tumor squeezes the surrounding tissues, blood vessels
and nerve endings, causing characteristic clinical symptoms in
form of swelling, pain, sensitivity disorders, etc. By
lipomas are divided into:
- Myolipoma (located deep in the muscles);
- Perineural (located near the nerve trunks);
- Adenolipomas (having glandular cells as a part), etc.
In 98% of cases, Wen form subcutaneously, less frequently recorded
intermuscular lipomas located in deep soft tissues.
Usually lipomas are single (94% of cases), less often multiple.

Wen on the body, the causes of which, presumably,
are hereditary as well as any provocative
factor. There are still no definite exact reasons for their
Education, the majority are only speculations, hypotheses.
Among the factors contributing to the development of lipomas, there are:
- Injuries, tissue squeezing
- Diseases, including hereditary, associated with the violation
- Weakened immunity and insufficient intake of vitamins and
protein into the body;
- Exposure to ionizing radiation;
- Age over 40 years.
All of these factors can be considered as reasons.

the emergence of Wen (lipomas) still goes hereditary
Having a sick relative in the family significantly increases the risk

growth of lipomas is divided, some believe that the enhanced growth of lipomas
impaired nutrition, obesity, others – whatever
lifestyle or nutrition does not affect the occurrence and
progression of Wen.

Symptoms wen under the skin
What does a wen look like? At the initial stage of the disease
asymptomatic, causing unpleasant sensations and deterioration
quality of life of the patient. As a rule, the patient does not attach importance
that the wen appeared on the body and is in no hurry to address
about this to the doctor.

and with skin. The skin over the wen are not changed and retain
normal color and elasticity.

Wen, is a contraindication to massage.
The masseur simply bypasses the single lipoma, in case of impossibility
lipoma treatment (with multiple fats on the body, under the skin),
then you should refuse to massage this area or completely
from massage. This applies not only to classic massage, but also
canned, honey, stone massage. In addition, during
Physiotherapy courses should also inform the doctor about the presence of a wen
under the skin.
The so-called atheromas are also commonly considered to be
very similar to lipomas, which can only be accurately differentiated
- Atheroma is formed in areas of the body where large concentrations of
sebaceous glands, and the lipoma is usually localized in places of accumulation
subcutaneous adipose tissue.
- The lipoma has no signs of blockage of the sebaceous gland (excretory
duct), which is observed in atheroma.
- Both tumors are almost indistinguishable by touch, however the lipoma
not soldered to the skin surface and is a subcutaneous tumor, and
Atheroma is part of the skin.
Lipomas can occur as single entities or in
in the form of multiple lesions on a limited small area of skin.

cases where the lipoma was larger than 10 centimeters.
Tumors of large size during uncontrolled growth begin
to form a characteristic clinical picture of the disease. First
the clinical manifestation of a lipoma is a feeling of discomfort,

how timely they are diagnosed and treated. Lipoma problem
rather lies in the aesthetic region. The presence of seals under
skin on open areas of the body causes significant discomfort
both for the patient and for others. But do not forget also
about possible complications of the disease with inadequate treatment.
