    Does anyone know what causes lipomas (fatty tumors under skin)?

    I know that lipomas have a hereditary component; my dad had them and now I do. As I lose weight on PB, they seem to be getting more obvious on my arms and legs. When I rub my skin in some places it feels like there is a marble under there!

    CW doctors/resources say 'we do not know what causes them.' And of course you can't get rid of them except to cut them out, so then you get to trade a lump for a scar!

    Anyway, thought I would put this out there for someone with experience/perspective on this to respond.

    As a neoplasm, I wonder if they respond at all to ketosis?
