Hi mr Anup,
After 2 nd surgery your surgeon would have certainly gone for FNAC /biopsy. what was the result of biopsy.go for other blood tests like TLC ,DLC, ESR ,S. Cholestrol.

en welcome to healthcaremagic
as you already have been operated once your surgeon will know what kind of tumor it is
biopsy after removal of the tumor establish the nature of tumor and treatment
from the description it seems you may be having neurofibromas ,a benign condition
please consult surgeon and get check up and treatment accordingly
get a f n a c or biopsy done
