What causes Xanthelasma?

Xanthelasma is yellowish lumps found around the eyes, comprised of fatty deposits, mostly formed of cholesterol. Patients who suffer from Xanthelasma may be suffering from excessive cholesterol, liver issues, or heart disease, though this is not always the case, it is always worth checking with your GP. Although xanthelasma itself does not cause any adverse effect on the health, it can be embarrassing and unsightly, particularly as it occurs in such a prominent area.
