He explains that the tumor affects more than one place and it is painful so He think it is maglignant. But I am so scared of post operation pain and complications and I do not make any decision yet. Also this strory http://www.abc-survivors.net/osteosarcoma/1193#more-1193  scares me. Now I am stuck. I do not  know what to do with my tumor. Anyone experienced rib tumor please help me. Thank you
