How big is it?: I don't think you mean 3 to 6 centimeters. You must mean 3.6 cm. A 3.6-cm tumor is 3.6 cm in size. Or do you mean that you don't understand the metric system? 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters. So if you divide 3.6 by 2.54 (get out your calculator), you'll get the size of the tumor in inches.
