As the mass is large, an open surgery will be necessary. Another way is the laparoscopic approach, but this is possible in only certain suitable cases. Discuss with your Doctor. Hope this helps.
Take care and good luck.
Hi there, personally my mass was larger than this and I would not of wanted my surgery done any other way, than being completely opened up. I would want to make sure that ever inch of my abdomen could be inspected. Please make sure you are seeing an gyn/oncologist. Best wishes.
