Question: Which kind of surgeon do I see?

 hbjaycee - Thu Jun 07, 2007 5:52 pm

I saw an internal medicine doctor and a general surgeon for a lump I have on the back of my head about two years ago. I was told it was a fatty tumor and that I had the option of removing it but the surgeon told me if it were him, he would just leave it. I has gotten a bit larger and I have decided to have it removed. What kind of surgeon should I be setting up an appointment with?

Best wishes.
