I've always heard that if a recurrence happens, it usually happens within 3cm of the original site...
It is a good sign however if they decide that surgery can help, that is a sign to me anyway that they think they can handle it.
There is no other real effective treatment other than surgery..

Originally his tumour was on his ride side and now was told it is back in the original spot but also a new one is growing on the left side. The are going to operate on the left one now he was told. I find this hard to comprehend. I've never heard of anyone being operated on both sides. Can anyone here tell me is this normal? Has anyone here been operated on both sides. I'm scared for him.
