Is it safe for a pregnant woman to undergo a surgery for a lump in the throat?

My granddaughter is 7mo preg an she told me she went to a vascular Dr cause she was spitting up blood. The Dr found a mass behind her l lung an is doing a procedure to go down her throat an remove the mass. He told her the procedure is 4 to 5 hrs an the baby would be asleep for prob 8 hrs she wouldn't feel her. He is doing it as out patient he said her throat will be real sore is only thing an he can't give her strong pain med. I'm real concerned for her an the baby.

It will be safe for baby. she needs to undergo the procedure, I believe both mother and baby will remain safe during surgery, there’s nothing to worry about.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
