Anyone ever know someone that has had this or maybe had it themselves? I just got diagnosed with this tumor. They thought it was a large lymph node and it turned out to be a large tumor. I'm just looking for someone to ask some questions to. I've read about what it is but it's rare and I can't find anyone that has had it that's talked about it. I know I have to get it removed but I heard there is a lot of risks so I'm a but nervous! Thanks!
