Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

The answer will depend on many factors including the extent of the cancerous growth (s) and the method used to remove them. She should be able to have this done under local anesthetic with very little down time. The success rate (for a cure) is very high when caught early. She will need to discuss this with her doctor.
