True cut biopsy is the good answer to you mother. After the tissue type is confirmed, theatment can start. Please do not ignore. You have already complicated things by not doing anything for 3 years. Now the tumour has become very big 10 cm is very big. it may be dangerous to wait further.

You should go by the Oncologist's advise. Surgery would be better but the age and the accompanying conditions have to be considered.
