Question about ranulas?


My girlfriend has one in her mouth. Supposedly it is not that big. I haven't seen it as she is currently in Asia and I am in the U.S. Anyway, who has had these. The doctor over there says he only wants to cut off the outer part and not the gland. According to wikipedia, this means that it is likely that the ranula will come back (because both parts were not cut). Who has experience with this? Any advice. Please message me. I am in New York City by the way. I appreciate any advice. Thanks.
