My husband had flank pain and frank blood in his urine. Has now had a CT scan with contrast and the urologist told him he has a large mass on his left kidney and will have to have all or part of his kidney removed. He referred him to a urologic oncologist for surgery and that appointment is tomorrow. At what point is Cancer diagnosed? Is it safe to believe that his doesn't have a cancerous tumor? Did the urologist just be safe with his words? Of course my husband asked NO questions and I have what seems like millions. I was so happy to find this discussion group. Thank you for your insight.
