Fat tissue appears in the embryo, and the formation of new lobules ceases in late fetal life or the early postnatal period. Lipoma is thought to result from a continuation of the proliferation of these fat tissue lobules. Thus lipoma is most common mesenchymal tumor & also known as ubiquitous tumor or universal tumor because it can arise from any part of body which contains fat. The treatment of giant lipoma is complete surgical excision but it associated with 5% recurrence rate.
