What should my grandpa do?

hi, my grandpa is 88-year-old guy. Recently, he is diagnosed to have a tumor in his bladder. The doctors suggest he to have operation but my mom thinks it might be too dangerous for such a old guy to take the risk. What do you think about this.

So sorry about your situation.

The decision is for your grandpa, unless your grandpa can't make the decision and your mother has to.

I cannot give an opinion on whether he should or not because I am not privy to know the particulars of his situation like his physicians are.

All the best.
