Neurosurgery 39 years experience
Paraganglioma: It really depends on location, do you have more details on the location of the lesion?
Dr. Jefferson Chen
Neurosurgery 34 years experience
Depends: This would depend on the size of the lesion, the vascularity, and location at the skull base. In general, with a team of neurosurgeons and skull base surgeons, it may take a few hours to remove this.

No: Fibroadenomas are the most common benign tumors of the breast. Diagnosis is usually made by sampling a piece of the lump obtained by needle biopsy. If the lump does not cause pain, is not very large, and is not growing, it is acceptable to watch these.
