Anthony Bray MD :

Hello!

Anthony Bray MD :

A cancer in theis area would be extremely rare. It also does not sound that the mechanism of the cyst formation would be at all suspicious for it being related to a cancer. I don't think this is a concern for you.

Customer :

Thank you!! I forgot to ask my Dr. and I was concerned about it. He said it was so large that they might have to open the shoulder up in order to get it.

Anthony Bray MD :

Good luck with your shoulder repair and healing. This is plenty to worry about but this is not a malignant type of problem at least.

Customer :

Thank you for your time!!

Anthony Bray MD :

You are welcome!

Customer :

Good night!

Anthony Bray MD :

Thanks> Good night to you as well.
