What Are The Chances Of Lipomas Developing Into Liposarcoma?
No need for surgery
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
If your biological mother had NF1 then you also must be having neurofibromas rather than lipomas because there is genetic link.
They are harmless swellings and extremely rare to become malignant.
There is no need for surgical removal except for cosmetic issues.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
The lipomas I have had removed were biopsied, and I was told that they were lipomas. No one said anything about neurofibromas. Is it possible that biopsies cannot distinguish between the two?
Thanks again. XXXXXXX
biopsy can distinguish
If biopsy proven then it's okay they might be lipomas. Biopsy can distinguish the two.
In presence of NF1 likelihood of the same is more so I guessed that way.
I hope the communication will be useful for you.
