fat tumors are also called lipoma. when the lipoma are multiple,it is caled lipomatosis. it can be confirmed by FNAC, a test in which a small needle will be pricked into one of those swellings and material aspirated will be examined under a microscope. not at all a serious problem except cosmetically. surgery is a treatment option but is reserved for only those swelling which are either interfering with your daily routine, or are painful/ prone to trauma or for cosmetic reason. unfortunately there is no treatment to stop them from increasing in size or number.

Fat tumors, you mean to say that the ones called as Lipoma, if that is the case then you need not worry. I have read in many articles that it is not at all serious and does not have the tendency to turn into a cancer. Treatment I guess, it should be taken out with surgery. Just check it out with a doc.
