Hi all, I am new here as the post says. I am a 41 year old married male in otherwise decent health. Found the tumor (1.2 cm) due to a kidney stone. The stone was taken out on the 12th and a biopsy for confirmation was done on the 19th. I guess I got lucky that I had a kidney stone and found it so early. My doctor said that the tumor might not have presented symptoms on its own for another 6 months to a year at which point they may have had to take the whole kidney. As it is I am only looking at a partial nephrectomy. I'm rambling. I just wanted to say hello.
