Hello,

How large is this lump ?

Is this soft / hard to touch ?

Have you had any other tests ?

Regards,
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
About 4 inches in size. Oval shape. Hard to the touch. No tests yet.

Hello,

This growth / mass is likely to be neoplastic ( cancerous ).

You are taking the right step in going for a biopsy to know if it is a benign or a malignant lesion.

Its treatment would depend on the result of the biopsy.

Kind Regards,
