Oncologist Dr. Ioan Dorian OANA's  Response
Surgical excision is the treatment of choice for almost every small intestinal neoplasm, but also for most benign lesions. So surgery it is a MUST TO and only afterwards it will be decided which chemotherapy is necessary, only if a new biopsy confirms the malignancy of the tumor.
