These are common in lower limbs (45 %), trunk (17%), shoulder and upper limb. These are more common in men. Lipomas are found in body of two types of variability, single and multiple. Single lipoma is common. It is usually superficial in subcutaneous area but can be deep also. According to Ayurveda, benign tumors are characterized as Granthi Roga. According to Ayurveda literature, they usually grow in proportion to body fat. These are comparatively large, fatty swellings with Kapha at the root of these tumors, they present as being soft.
