Rachelsmom,Try to take a deep breath and relax. I know it's hard to do but you need to for your own sanity.
Yes my husband had a lump in his breast and he had several biopsy's on the one lump. Thank God it was not cancerous. The Dr. said it is common for men with liver problems(cirrhosis) to have enlarged breasts . The Dr. was concerned before the biopsy. The procedure was done in radiology and he did not have to have general anesthesia.
I have hep c and i'm on the transplant list. I have cirrhosis,varices,edema,gallstones,portal hypertension,gastritis,I could go on and on. I in the hospital back in Feb. due to severe pain which turned out to be gallstones. The DR. at the local hospital wanted to take it out,I said no not until I talked with my specialist at transplant. My hepatologist told me I didn't need it out at this time and that the surgery it self was not so risky but the anesthesia is the problem. He stated that general anesthesia slows your organs down and if my liver didn't restart that I would need a transplant ASAP,and the likely hood of me getting one on time was very slim. I still have stones and this to is common with liver problems such as ours. My hepa. Dr. told me if I have problems with my gallbladder to go to the nearest hospital and have them contact my Hepa Dr. and make arrangements to transport me to the university, whick is 1 1/2 -2 hours away from where I live so they can have transplant on alert and be waiting for me. Hopefully the stint will work for your Dad and he wont need it removed.
I hope I was able to help in some way.
Take care and my thoughts and prayers are with you , your Dad and family,
P.S. keep me posted
