Some tests needed: This all depends, what are the tests they wish to run? Without knowing, I can't really give an answer. Sorry

Need to know: It is important to know the cause of the growth in order to be sure of the correct treatment. A cancerous growth would be treated differently than a benign wart, etc.

Talk to doctor: Good afternoon, Perhaps your doctor wants to confirm that you do not have any problems that would require additional treatment or change your management of care. Please discuss this with your doctor...Best wishes... Dr Jones Singer
