irregular mass lesion with necrotic areas

User Profile
Hello Doctor, Today we received a scan result for my mother that says "An irregular mass lesion with necrotic areas seen in the right temporal lobe measuring 6x3.3x3.6' cm perilesional edima is seen. The right lateral ventricle is compressed with 9mm middle line shift to the left side. There is adj. right temporal meningeal enhancement seen. Remaining functions are normal. Impression : Finding in Favor of GBM in the right Temporal lobe.

Doctor advised for immediate surgery to cut the tissue for further lab test. Please advise the risk associated with this surgery and how the surgery will be performed (opening skull or using laser etc). Honestly we are very scared now.
