What is a wen?
It is known that lipoma is a benign tumor that affects loose connective tissue. These are accumulations of subcutaneous fat that appear in unusual places: for example, on the back, shoulder, outer thighs, arms, head or face. Zhiroviki can occur on internal organs.
Initially, a wen is a small subcutaneous ball, soft and supple to the touch, resembling an enlarged lymph node. The only danger coming from lipoma is associated with attempts to independently get rid of wen on the face or any other part of the body at home, trying to squeeze or puncture. Its appearance is not accompanied by an increase in body temperature, it does not contain pus, does not hurt, does not become inflamed.
How can I remove wen on the face?
Do not try to get rid of the lipoma yourself, if any suspicious neoplasm is detected on the body, you should definitely consult your doctor. Only professional diagnostics will help determine the type of benign tumor reliably. It is difficult for a non-specialist to distinguish a lipoma from a cyst like atheroma, hygroma or an enlarged lymph node.

A more familiar way to get rid of a lipoma is the husking (enucleation) of a wen, which is performed by a surgeon. The skin is carefully dissected and the tumor is carefully squeezed out.
Sometimes the lipoma has a spilled, cluster-like shape, reaching large sizes. In such cases, they carry out full-fledged surgical operations to remove body fat under general anesthesia with suturing.
