What does fatty tissue on the neck indicate?

hello I have fatty tissue in my neck to the side of my throat. I have had it check out and there is no medical issue. Is there a name for this I would like to have it removed. As a healthy fit person in good shape it is very noticeable. I would like to have it removed. YYYY@YYYY

Hi!

What you're describing is probably a lipoma. A harmless swelling that does not.bother you medically but harm your looks and aesthetics. You can easily get it removed without a scar. See a dermatologist and arrange for its removal!
