I want to ask my father who has a laryngeal tumor. I had a biopsy and it turned out that my father had a benign tumor. And surgical removal of the tumor is always put on hold in the hospital where my father often controls. what I want to ask is what impact my father will receive if the operation is always delayed and this is the 3rd week it continues to be postponed

Hello Sarianti, thank you for your question

Laryngeal tumors based on the nature of their growth can be divided into benign laryngeal tumors and malignant laryngeal tumors. Both are distinguished by the course of the disease and clinical examination, but confirmed through histopathological examination of biopsy. Several types of benign laryngeal tumors include:

Papilloma juvenille hemangioma - from fibromal vascular tissue - from the fibrous connective tissue of the chondroma - from cartilage tissue myxoma neurofibroma - from nerve tissue and connective tissue.

Here are some of the symptoms caused by benign laryngeal tumors:

hoarseness of breath aspiration difficulty swallowing ear pain coughing blood Removal of the tumor is the main treatment which is proven to restore sound as well as functional integrity of the larynx as an airway. The removal procedure depends on the size of the tumor. If the tumor is small, it is excised endoscopically using a CO2 laser, accompanied by general anesthesia, of course. Meanwhile, if the tumor is large, it requires cutting the pharynx (pharyngotomy) or making a gap in the larynx (laryngophisura).

As long as the surgery is not performed, your father will still experience the symptoms mentioned above. Discuss with the ENT doctor who usually treats your father, because doctors must have their own considerations between the benefits and risks that can be caused during or after surgery.

Hopefully this information is useful.
