Brief Answer:
Surgical removal is the option

Detailed Answer:
Hi there.
Welcome to HealthCareMagic.
I have gone through your query.

Lipoma is a benign tumor of adipose tissue and usually presents as asymptomatic/ painless, soft/rubbery swellings which slip under the fingers when pressed. It is the most common benign form of soft tissue tumor.

Lipomas are usually small, remain the same size over years or grow very slowly. Usually, treatment of a lipoma is not necessary, unless the tumor becomes painful or restricts movement or becomes unsightly or bothersome.

If it becomes cosmetic concern for you or restrict you in some way, then you can go for surgical removal of lipoma. There are no medicines available to reduce or stop the growth.

Where is it situated? How long it has been there?

Surgical removal is the treatment, if it is bothering you.
This provisional advice provided by me is based entirely on the input provided to me. I would suggest examination by the doctor.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any further queries regarding.
Take care.
