They both found a 5cm tumor in my left kidney as it is quite large my urologist is now arranging for the kidney to be removed. I now tell anyone do not ignore anything, All I did was sweet without reason, there is always a reason.

My cancer was found by accident. I was having my gallbladder remomved and a radiologist took a x-ray for the doctor. He noticed something on my kidney in the exray. The doctor did a biopsy and it was a cancerous tumor. He did surgery that removed my tumor and 10 percent of my kidney. The cure was surgery for me. That was 8 years ago.
