I was diagnosed with a Lipoma measuring 6 x 4 mm in the left occipital
convexity about 2 1/2 years ago after having an MRI for migraines. My
neurologist just said that it was a fatty tumor, it's not causing my
headaches and he is basically not worried about it, however he wants to
monitor it every couple years.
I have MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS. It seems there is not much research on Lipomas, especially in the brain.
I still suffer from headaches (minor to major) almost daily and have some other symptoms that may or may not be related........like occasional blurry vision, loss of balance and/or dizziness.
If a Lipoma CAN cause pain elsewhere, why can't it cause headaches?
What symptoms should I watch for with it being in the left occipital convexity?
Should I get a second opinion or just go with what I have?
Should it be removed?
Has anyone else had a lipoma in the same location?
