Lipoma – Submandibular Area

A 67-year-old repair man (cobbler, shoemaker, etc) has a recurrent left submanbibular mass.

The mass is beneath the skin; 4-cm in its greatest diameter; feels solid and soft; with well-defined border; movable, and non-tender.

The primary clinical diagnosis is a lipoma in the left submandibular area.

An excision was done under local anesthesia and outpatient basis.

The final diagnosis is LIPOMA.

Lipoma is tumor of fatty tissue and is benign (non-cancerous).
