It's really sad that insurance companies don't realize that by not removing this tumour right away, bills will cost in the many thousands later from the offshooting deadly diseases. By the way, I know of two people who had theirs removed and know of one other whose mother had hers removed. Yes, the operations are dangerous, but if you go to a surgeon who has done a whole lot of them it's safer.
