I actually disagree with your explanation. The second part of the sentence states "the most effective way to cure a benign Tumour [...]". Someone can cure a tumor from another person, therefore A doesn't imply that a person has to cure the tumor by removing it himselve.

In my opinion, the mistake in A is that the verb is splitted "to immediately remove". "To" and the infinitive shouldn't be seperated by an adverb or any other word. If this logic is correct, changing the sentence to "to remove it immediately" would fix answer A and make it valid.

Because of the mistake I explained, E is preferrable over A.

Let me know what you think about my reasoning :-)

basically look at this phase "Tumour is to immediately remove" this seems like you have something that causes problem and you have to simply remove it but in E "to have it immediately removed" this means to remove it by someone else. If you read meaning you will realize that even the source is saying thing after your explanation i saw this information from the source.

This is just a meaning question, in which you are the doer who can either remove the tumor himself or have it removed by a professional.

to have the tumor removed by a professional makes more sense

While we can argue the grammar, the sentence itself is illogical. You need to remove a malignant tumour, not a benign one. :)

For those of you who are as confused as I was about A/E dilemma, E is preferred because "to have it removed" implies professional services, which should be the meaning behind this sentence. It is analogous to saying "to have your hair done", "to have your nails done", etc.

I think, the use of FANBOYS (use of AND) is not correct here. In the better version there should have a COMMA before AND. If we don't use COMMA before AND the italic part will be considered as separate entity, but from the meaning it seems that the italic part is not separate entity. Also, the use of 'it" after "before" is awkward to me, at least for this SC. The better version should be using VERBing with verb (i.e., spread and become) as those verbs have been used after the word "before".

I need an official response from Experts' Global team.

The correct version should be:
Tumours are group of abnormal cells that form lumps of growths, and these may be benign or malignant; the most effective way to cure a benign Tumour is to have it immediately removed before spreading and becoming irremovable.
