Shoulder Tumor and Cancer Risks
My daughter has tumor on her shoulder. Is this apt to be cancer?
The only way to know for sure if a mass is cancerous is through a biopsy. It would be our recommendation that she be evaluated by a physician, and this evaluation may include radiology images and biopsy.
