Lumps and Swellings

Lumps and Swellings

Background

Lumps and swellings under the skin are very common. The vast majority are innocent and harmless (lipomas {fatty lumps}, sebaceous cysts).

Diagnosis

A physical examination is required to determine the cause of the lump or swelling.

Procedures Offered

Symptomatic lumps can usually be removed under local anaesthetic as a day case.
