Exclamation Oral Tumour

Hi, my hedgehogs name is Gretchen and she's 5 years old and I took her to the vet today because she's dropped a bit of weight and one side of her mouth was swollen. The vet looked at her and it was for sure a tumour and gave me three options: leave it and see how she does, remove it with surgery or remove it and send it for biopsy. I've read that removing it doesn't really work because most come back and can be quite aggressive. Does anyone have any advice or similar experiences?
