Importance of lipoma of the cord
uAhah! You have been doing your research.
This article is just another example of complications that can occur when you have not yet met the steep learning curve for laparoscopic surgery. Lipomas of the spermatic cord can very effectively be removed at the time of laparoscopy unless they are very deep into the scrotum, but it must be part of the checklist of things to do while performing the dissection.
Ultrasound does not reliably differentiate cord lipoma from fat-containing hernia.
