Dear Irene,
Sometimes when there is muscle stiffness, it causes a sensation of numbness – as long as the numbness went away when the stiffness improved, then you should not be concerned. If it happens again, you may need treatment for the muscle stiffness.
The lipoma has nothing to do with this problem.
