As mentioned in my previous posts I will be meeting w/ an ocologic orthopedic surgeoen to discuss removal of my tumor for biopsy. Additionally, it's starting to cause pain in my arm.
I've been told they will remove the entire tumor and surrounding healthy tissue.
Is this typically an outpatient/in patient procedure for this kind of biopsy? Is it likely that a large part of the area in which the tumor is located will be removed? It's located just below my elbow. I have a lot of questions for the surgeon and another week to wait until meeting with him. I'd appreciate any insight. Thank you!
