Hello

I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you

It depends upon the severity of tumor and how fast it spreads

Hi,

You 'll be definitely benefited by the surgery if the tumor is at the initial stages. This will also increase your life expectancy

Expert:  Dr Chaithanya replied 12 months ago.

But if the tumor is spread, surgery may not benefit much. You talk to your surgeon about stage of the tumor and decided.

Hope this helps
