Hello from ja
Where is the tumor
What pathology findings exactly
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Tumour located at site of appendix and covering exit. Appendix contains stagnant fluid. Can only give name of tumour tomorrow when asked for reminder of name.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
OK
Find that out and find me right here
If it is a benign tumor, it does not need treatment other than removal at all.

And removal only if it is causing problems, or likely to keep growing.

Just in general

Let me know when you have further information.

The tumour is described as tubal villus adenoidal with low grade dysplasia
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
OK
So that is precancerous potentially.
So that is why it needs to come out.
