lipoma excised from otherwise healthy 35 y/o male
Have to say that's super cool. I watched a lipoma being drained/popped on a loved one and it has since come back. If it is excised as you have done, what is the chance of recurrence ?
The recurrence rate is quite low especially if it is an isolated occurrence as in this patient. With patients who have a history of several lipomas throughout their body, the recurrence may be higher.
Thanks for posting - interesting case! What's frustrating is the reimbursement for that monster will be the same tiny fee as if it were a little fibroma.
Haha yes, you're right.
