Lymphoma located in center of chest, area not sore. Safest procedure for its removal?

I am told that I have a form of Lymphoma located to the left of my back and in the center of my chest between my breast . The areas are not sore in any way. It is similar to having a lump/hump. I was told by my doctor that this can be removed. I gather in a suction and removal of fatty tissue way. Is this a procedure that is safe? Thanks!

Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
Treatment of lymphoma is chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy if indicated. To confirm the diagnosis biopsy is needed. IHC should also be done to know the sub types. Surgical removal is not an option. Consult your oncologist , he/she can guide you better.
