Since a lipoma is basically a lump of fat, it doesn't cause your dog any pain and you won't see any changes in the skin, such as hair loss.
Because these fatty tumors appear more often on obese dogs, a diet high in carbohydrates may be a factor in lipoma growth.
3. Verb, base form
If you allowed lipoma to go unchecked by a veterinarian, you could be putting your dog in grave danger, as the tumor could be a malignant cancer.
