What was the record-breaking lump on Dr Pimple Popper?

What is a lipoma?
Mayo Clinic states: “A lipoma is a slow-growing, fatty lump that’s most often situated between your skin and the underlying muscle layer.
“A lipoma, which feels doughy and usually isn’t tender, moves readily with slight finger pressure. Lipomas are usually detected in middle age. Some people have more than one lipoma.”
The publication notes that lipomas are noncancerous are are “usually harmless.”
It continues: “Treatment generally isn’t necessary, but if the lipoma bothers you, is painful or is growing, you may want to have it removed.”
