Finding out more about your treatment

Your surgeon will provide you with the following basic information before you make decisions about your treatment:

the name of the surgical procedure
what this procedure involves
the possible risks and benefits of undertaking surgery
other surgical and non-surgical options
the possible outcomes if you do not have surgery.
Sometimes the surgeon has to wait for the results of the biopsy on the surgically removed tissue before he can tell you whether you need more treatment and what treatment it might be.
