My friend just had a malignant kidney tumor removed (along with the kidney) it weighed 7.5 lbs. as big as a basketball? Any ideas on next action. Is this normally fatal? Any repies would be apprecited.

Re: Looking for information on kidney cancer

You said that the Kidney Tumor was 7.5 Lbs. and as big as a basketball. How did they find out such a big size and by what method of tests ? Did the test of the removed Kidney Tumor come back cancerous or non-cancerous ? If it was cancerous, your friend has to watch his/her Lungs and other organs. An X Ray for his/her Lungs should be done as soon as possible and in every three months interval of X Ray monitoring. If the cancer does spread to one area of Lung and the Lung resection will prolong his/her life. If it was non-cancerous, he/she can live as usual and normal. Fatal or not is all depending on each of
the situation.
