You have a problem. Each language, each country, each hospital and even each frigging doctor has his/hers abbreviations. In this case, it is understandable, for the doctors don't want the information to go around (dealing with tumors).
ADVICE, if you are in the place of the said hospital, you could give them a call to sort out the abbreviations. Or even get their email, a name of a dr., something and ASK the questions. Some people are very considerate. The Bayer Co. gave us the whole insert for our orientation in a new translation.
It will show that you are concerned and it will look good.
