Re: Mass found in left kidney..scared!

Hi smo4142

I'm sorry to hear that you are going through this. My father had an ultrasound done in the ER when he had trouble urinating and had blood in the urine and the ultrasound picked up the tumor right away. I believe his was over 5cm in size.. Of course they couldn't 'say' it was cancer, But they suggested he see a Urologist ASAP and he did. He had stage IV kidney cancer and they removed his entire kidney because it was 'contained' to just the kidney. If it is cancer, just remember that there are different stages and treatments.. Are you being seen by a Urologist? And what else are they planning to do? Best of luck to you.

@ William Y - What stage Kidney Cancer did you have?
