Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Depends: Most likely this can be removed by a laparoscope . These incisions are quite small about 1to 11/2 inches. There are usually 3 of these small incisions. For people who need to have a larger incision may be about 5-5.5 inches.
Dr. Gurmukh Singh

Vaginal: Your doctor may be able to remove the lesion through the vagina and not leave any visible scar.
