Hello. Thank you for your message.

If it's important for you to know exactly what this mass is in order to have peace of mind, then it's probably a good idea to find out. Only you can answer this. What does your doctor advise doing about it? Does he have a fairly good idea of what it might be? You should discuss this with him or her, but in the end, it's up to you, and how you feel about it going forward.
