Oh No Associated with Kidney Cancer . Posted on August 15, 2011 View this journey (4 Experiences)

In May 2010, I had been experiencing pain in my lower back(right side.) After 2 weeks, I went to my doctor to get checked. I had blood in my urine and he thought I may have kidney stones. As was traveling to my son's graduation in Savannah, Ga. within the next several days, doc wanted me to have a cat scan that night. They discovered a growth the size of a man's fist in my right kidney. Had an MRI the next day for further investigation. Went to a urologist/surgeon, Dr. Troy Sukkarieh, in Morganville, NJ (excellent) and he said I would need to have my kidney removed. As I am a school teacher, I finished out the school year and on June 30, 2010, I had the surgery.
