Definition of Lipomas:

Very common benign tumors that are made of normal fat cells.  They feel like soft, moveable lumps underneath the skin and do not have any malignant potential.  Can be easily surgically removed.  Most are found under the skin, but they can develop anywhere in the body.  Lipoblastomas and hibernomas, like lipomas, are also benign fat tissue tumors.

Also: Lipoblastoma, Lipoblastomas, Lipoma, Hibernoma, Hibernomas
