Cancerous tumors and cysts can develop from a wide range of causes and vary in size and treatment. As they develop certain growths in a particular region can cause significant pressure on other, healthy organs and structures.
In some of these cases Dr. Tomas Birriel and the surgical services offered at his Morgan City, Louisiana clinic might be able to extract a small amount of local tissues. This can help to relieve discomfort and pressure throughout the treatment process.
Dr. Birriel will start with a basic consultation and examination of the area in question. This might include taking some blood tests, X-rays, or performing an electrocardiogram. It’s very important that you follow all instructions regarding food and drink before and after the procedure.
Once Dr. Birriel ensures that you are fully comfortable under anesthesia, he can start the process of removing the cancer, cyst, or other applicable tissues. In some cases the surrounding healthy tissue, such as lymph nodes, may also need to be excised to prevent the cancer from spreading.
Afterward Dr. Birriel will provide you with any necessary instructions to help you heal properly and maintain your comfort. You might also need to return in a week or two so Dr. Birriel can assess your progress and remove stitches.
If you live in the Morgan City, Louisiana area and you are experiencing pain, pressure, or discomfort from a tumor, or cyst, you should call 985-384-7173 to set up a consultation appointment with Dr. Tomas Birriel.
