Alberto Contador undergoes surgery to remove over 100 benign tumours

Alberto Contador announced via Instagram earlier this week he is taking some time off from his duties in the cycling community to recover from surgery. The retired “El Pistolero” had more than 100 fatty lipomas removed on Dec. 21. 

Lipomas are fatty tumors, usually non-cancerous, that develop between the skin and muscles. Their removal can be done under local anaesthetic injections, and each lipoma removal can take between 20-45 minutes. The recovery process can take up to three to four weeks to completely heal.
