My dad has a tumor in the upper and mid pole of the right kidney measuring 14 *6.9*10.5 CMS as per latest USG. 2. Likewise prostrate is also enlarged at 5 CMS. 3. The Impressions mentioned in the report include Mild Hepatocellular splenomegaly, small cyst measuring 1.7 CMS in the left lobe of liver, mass lesion in the right kidney, enlarged prostate. 4.The latest chest ray states, well defined rounded opacities in right mid zone and bilateral lower zone with a possibility of lungs metastasis. 5. He has lost 10 kgs in the last 1 year. 6. His left and right foot especially appear to be swelling now. Not sure why. 7. He wakes up 6-7 times at night to pass urine and as a result has a disturbed sleep. 8.He has been constantly having cough and pain along the lower back and spinal cord. If surgery needs to be done, how critical would that be? Life threats now versus Post surgery? Can surgery be avoided? Any effective oral medication?

Appears kidney cancer with spread to lung. PET/CT scan will show all the body parts affected with it, so that it can be analysed and managed better. Surgery is not required when there is already metastasis (spread). Oral medications are available to keep a control over the growth of tumor so that life can be extended. Please consult a qualified medical oncologist near by for further analysis and prescription.
