Mensagem:  I was writing (in fact, translating) a medical text about surgery regarding some lesions an individual presented. After introducing the subject, it starts describing the lesions in detail. There are small ones, and a big one.
My question: can I write "The bigger lesion is located on ..."? I am not sure if I can use the "comparativo de superioridade" in a sentence without the presence of its comparison. In Portuguese I would say: "a lesão maior está localizada ..."
