Hi there. Thank you for posting your question with Healthcaremagic. I will do my best to help you.
If this is a true lipoma
, while it may be over the spine, it will have no connection with the spinal cord
or the neurological system. Lipoma are sub-cutaneous and encapsulated. This is not, as you say, a risky area.
A well trained Cosmetic Surgeon would be fine. Or, probably less expensively, a good general surgeon
could remove this. A second opinion
and the necessity for surgery at all would be important I think. Take this carefully. No rush and good luck.
I hope that I have answered your questions fully and been of some help. If you have anymore questions please contact me again anytime.
Dr Andrew Rynne.
