Thanks for writing to us.
A lipoma if it is showing infilteration on MRI needs to be operated before it turns carcinogenic. Also the infilteration may increase and affect other vertebrae also and slowly the nerve compression symptoms might appear.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
