    Procedure or Surgery

    My mother in law underwent a surgical procedure to remove a polyp in her sinus in October of 2012. She had suffered congestion and a sinus infection through most of the summer. We all really thought it was allergies due to the high pollen rates last year. During surgery the ENT discovered the tumor which later would be diagnosed as Mucosal Melanoma.
