Treatment: Surgery is the most serious treatment, and has many possible side effects, but removes the bulk of the tumor. Radiation therapy can be used to help reduce the tumor size or treat the area of the tumor, and can cause skin irritation and some scarring. Chemotherapy can be used to treat the tumor or treat the spread of the tumor, and can have some uncomfortable side effects, nausea, weakness, other.
