CT scan revealed a malignant kidney tumor in my brother. The tumor size is 3x7, which corresponds to stage 2. Tell me, please, how long does it take for such a tumor to be developed? And is it possible to remove the tumor surgically (total kidney removal)?
For a more precise answer we need to assess patient’s CT scans ourselves. At the EMC’s Urology clinic, both total and partial kidney removal with tumor is performed using the da Vinci robot. These surgeries are very gentle with fast postoperative recovery.
