Hi ,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic forum.

The operability of the tumor depends on the stage of the tumor and the histological grading which will be determined from the test.

If the tumor is small and peripherally located and has not spread outside of lungs, then it is considered as operable and such kind of tumors can be removed.
