Hi! I have been diagnosed with a parapharyngeal space tumor. I am 34 years old and have two young children. From what I have been told, the surgery is quite challenging and poses many risks. I have also been told that surgery is the route to go before the mass begins to cause problems for me. I am wondering if anyone knows of any ENT surgeons that have performed this surgery more than once and have performed it successfully. I live in Ontario. I am open to traveling anywhere for the best surgeon. Also, I am wondering the what the length of this surgery is and what all the complications are. Thanks!
