What you describe as âmultiple lipomoâ is probably âlipomasâ. The exact cause of lipomas isn't known. Lipomas tend to run in families as hereditary familial lipomatosis, so genetic factors play a role in some cases.
Sometimes lipomas occur after an injury but it cannot be said for sure whether they are caused by the trauma or whether they were accidently detected after injury.
Coming back to your question, It is difficult to say how to control it, as the cause is not known. Since you have many of them, there is a chance that it runs in your family. This is a benign tumor (not cancerous) and hence generally left as it is. Hope this helps. Take care!
