three lipomas in my body

I have three lipomas in my body (that I know of). The largest - which I've had practically my whole life, is just above my right knee. The second one, is in my upper right arm (it just looks like part of my arm). The third, which developed just a few years ago, is just behind my left knee, in the corner joint. They're not particularly pretty, but my doc felt all three of them and said there was nothing to worry about. Lipomas are for the most part just benign lumps of fatty tissue. In cases where they grow too large they can be removed, but so far I have not had this done. I don't have any lipomas on my kidneys. I think that some people are just more prone to these than others - perhaps it's genetic, although nobody seems to know for sure. I'm just happy that I have THIS kind of tumor, and not the malignant kind

Cheers,

Monte
