One of my close friend was diagnosed with Benign tumor in Dec 2006. The size of Tumor is 3 cm & its touching her Pancreas, doctors suggested her to go for an immediate surgery (Class 6, Supra Major surgery) & also informed that they will have to remove her Pancreas.

But she decided against surgery & trying for an alternative therapy called Rekki (which i feel not going to work at all as there are no basis to it) mean time she also got engaged to a guy & getting married in Dec 2007 & the guy with whom she is getting married doesn’t know about her medical problem so whats the advice for her & whats the opinion on following.

1) Does she have any risk to her life?
2) Can she continue without surgery?
3) Will she face any problem during pregnancy because of tumor?
4) Will it affect her Sex life?
