First off I am very sorry to hear your god daughter has this. My prayers for her and her family.
I didn't know anything about this condition and did a little research on Google. I found that it is usually benign, but 10% or so can be cancer. It also is usually removed surgically, but can come back and spread. It seems there is a high chance of it returning.
From what I read surgery is the usual 1st treatment along with close blood pressure monitoring.
