Tumors come in a variety of forms. For clinical purposes, there are two basic classes: benign and malignant tumors. Benign tumors are non-cancerous while malignant tumors can grow and spread cancer to other parts of the body. While some benign tumors are difficult to remove, the best option in most cases is to have benign and malignant tumors removed.
Sometimes, however, patients cannot get their insurers to pay for the cost of surgical tumor removals, and patients must get their surgery elsewhere. Paying for surgery in the United States is often prohibitively expensive, and some surgeons refuse to operate on risky tumors. For patients who want tumors removed quickly and safely, the best option may be to travel to another country and have the tumor removed by a qualified surgeon.
