      Yes, I went to the Urgent care clinic after painlessly urinating blood. I was told I had a Kidney stone and was sent home with some flowmax and a good luck. By midnight that evening I was in such terrible pain my wife took me to the closest ER. Scans finally found the 6cm tumor in my right kidney. I haven't had a good day since. Fighting hard.
