This is a case of submucosal colonic lipoma presenting with obstructive symptoms and mimicking colonic carcinoma on colonoscopy warranting surgery. Diagnosis of submucosal lipoma was made on histopathological assessment of the tumor mass, therefore it should be considered as a differential diagnosis while evaluating a patient with obstructive symptoms.
