Which specialist doctor should be consulted for the treatment of lipoma ?

I think my daughter has a lipoma on her back, hew will be 6 in 2 months. As per her it only hurts when it is being pressured. I want to take her to the specialist just to be sure and if needed cure. Which kind of specialized doctors should I look for? I was told to take her to Orthopedics Surgeons. Is it correct? Thank you in advance. rana

A lipoma is relatively harmless. In case it is growing fast and getting painful you must consult a General Surgeon who will help you the best.
