glomus vagale tumor need other opinion
My wife had a glomus vagale tumor with left caroted sheath with a anterior displacement of the internal caroted artery and jugular. If there is surgery to remove this, what is involved? How long does it take ?What kind of recovery can we expect? How often is this type of surgery done?
This question depends on age, size, and other medical problems. We treat these neural tumors with a team-oriented approach and have good results. If you wish to contact me, call 513-584-6915.
