: Also diagnosed with multiple angiolipoma, although only one biopsy has been done. Please could you tell me how you were able to determine the numbers?

In reply:

Thank you for your message.

Angiolipoma can be detected in three main ways

1 Those below the skin can be felt.
2 Those deeper in tissue can be detected by MRI and CAT scanning
3 Other angiolipoma may become 'active' (that is their mast cell complement degranulates causing swelling and pain and effects adjacent physiological functions)

Hope this helps.
