    My only sister has a 2 yr old daughter - for the last 3 wks, since the Dr told us the baby had a tumor over her right eye - most likely the size of a golf ball - We have been on pins & needles!! I am sure others have been through similar things.
    We have prayed for no cancer & the the surgery to go well.

    Well Tuesday my neice under went surgery where they did remove a larger tumor & did a skull scrape.

    Today we learn NO CANCER! The baby will be fine & there is no other treatment expected for her. Tumor is gone & we can not be more thankful!
    *Wonderful* news 7! It's really great to have you back... and intact!

    Great news! Very observant of your brother-in-law. Catching it early probably minimized the surgery. Prayers for a quick recovery.

    Welcome back!

She was seen in clinic, then a specialist the very next day with in just a couple weeks surgery was done. Childrens Hospital St Paul was wonderful!!

    Dr Lacey was so kind & understanding. The tumor has grown over the last 6-12 months is their thought. She has a hole in her skull & has to be very careful. But she is expected to make a full recovery & children that small will most likely have their skull reform & fill in the hole all on its own with out a plate!!!
    That is really the best possible outcome! Let's pray it's her last time on an operating room table EVER!!

    Just a couple questions though:

    They removed the tumor and it was benign, right? Why didn't they do a biopsy of it before they removed it? I assume the answer will be that it needed to be removed regardless, but I thought I'd ask.

    Second, were they able to remove the tumor through the eyesocket without any long term scarring or did they have to go through the skull?

    Once again, GREAT NEWS!! Sorry if my questions are inappropriate. I'm just a curious kind-of-guy.
