Lipoma removal - How &  where &  cost

Hi

I have lipmoa (ie fatty tumours that look like lumps beneath the skin). most are small and dont worry me but there are a few larger ones (half golf ball size) I want removed which I understand can be done with a local anashetic. What sort of doctor does one consult to have this done and where do you find them? Do you think it will be very expensive?

Dear Pepper
You need to see a surgeon. Ask your GP to refer you. Cost would depend on the hospital, the doctor and where and how he wants to do it
