How do you decide what to do? Your first response is probably to ask the doctors what they recommend. But if you do, it' s likely that you won't receive a consensus of opinion. Often physicians disagree about the best way to treat a disease, especially when there are many options as in the case of complicated diseases like cancer or AIDS. It is possible that some will believe that the risk of cancer is small enough to warrant the wait-and-see decision (Why rush to operate?), whereas others will believe that immediate surgery is the best decision (Better safe than sorry). Ultimately the decision is yours.
