Lipomas are common mesenchymal soft tissue tumors found mostly on the trunk and extremities. They are rarely seen in the axilla, where a large-sized tumor can result in neurovascular compression with resultant symptoms. We report a rare case of giant lipoma located in the left axilla with extension to the supraclavicular region, causing pain and numbness in the left arm. A 66-year-old male presented with numbness and tingling in the left arm, shoulder pain, and loss of strength for about 7 years. He underwent a resection of the mass via a supraclavicular incision with subsequent resolution of his symptoms at follow-up. Final pathology confirmed a lipoma.
