Vox Lipoma

In the 1960s, a lipoma starts to grow on the right side of Ingmar Bergman's face. It gets bigger and bigger, and then suddenly, shortly after the premiere of The Silence, it disappears. In the 1990s, the lipoma miraculously appears again, but with a different color. What is the meaning of this lipoma? Where did it go? Why did it come back?
