Brief Answer: Need some more details Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. The prognosis or the secondary effects caused by the tumor cannot be judged by the size or its location. The Histopathology report correlation is an essential element in identifying the tumor type, characteristics, health hazards, secondary effects too. Do wait for the Path report and only based on that you could get a clear picture of the tumor. regards,
