5 doctors agree

In brief: Monitor

Keep checking for new lesions.
Removing an individual lesion does not prevent the formation of new lesions at a different site.

agree. However if there is any evidence of systemic involvement- i.e. lymph gland enlargement with involvment of Kapossi proven by biopsy - then chemotherapy would likely be recommended.

In brief: Very complicated

There are so many variables as to the extent of the disease and location.
You need to spend some time with your oncologist to discuss these questions. Make an appointment and write down your questions in advance so you don't forget. Good luck.
