Post I dont know if this is the right place

Or even yet what I am going to type

Guess I had better start with the basics
I am a 40 yr old male in the UK, now single with no kids

for a few years I have had a few fatty lumps mainly in my arms chest and back.. a couple were irritating and got excised

over the last couple months (3-4 months) 2 have appeared in my midrif.. these have grown to about 4 inch long x 2 inch wide. I saw my doctor and was sent to an Oncologist, Today I had the appointment..

I had a full assesment over my body, they found lumps I never knew I had.. I have 78 verified lumps

The Oncologist says most are Lipomas and non-aggressive however at least 5 are deemed aggressive tumours

because of the extent of the lipomas the Oncologist is not willing to excise , as he says with a tendancy to produce these many surgery is unlikely to stop them

does anyone have any information on aggressive lipomas???

I feel I have been left hanging in the wind, with no advice or support just an appointment in 4 months to check the progress of the little %%&&**^^

Thank you for your time, If I have posted this in the wrong arena please point me to the correct place
Rikki

You may also want to look for further information at the following web sites. [url="http://www.canceronline.org/info/cancer"]http://www.canceronline.org/info/cancer[/url] [url="http://www.canceronline.org/info/cancer"]http://www.canceronline.org/info/cancer[/url] [url="http://cancer.med.upenn.edu/"]http://cancer.med.upenn.edu/[/url] [url="http://www.medlineplus.gov"]http://www.medlineplus.gov[/url] [url="http://www.cancerguide.org/second_opinion.html"]http://www.cancerguide.org/second_opinion.html[/url]

All of these are either government, university, or NIH web sites that provide info on various types of cancer. The last one is a web site that provides info on how to obtain a second opinion.
