These masses are not always malignant. If they can they will remove it... that would be best. They should be talking about a biopsy. There is a huge difference between 2cm and 4cm, find out which it is... a 4cm tumor could be pressing against other organs and be a bigger problem.
If you are going to the doctor appointments with your dad, I recommend bringing a pad and paper. Before you even go list questions you have. Then get the answers at the doctors appointment.
I hope this helps get you started.
