I brought my daughter to the emergency room because she had been urinating pure blood for a few days. After 8 hours in the Emergency Room, we were told she had a tumor in her kidney and could be malignant. The next morning the day time ER Doctor called to say that the scans were reviewed again and that she just has a kidney infection. After 4 more days of urinating blood, I stopped at a Kidney Center near my home and spoke with the doctor there. He said he would review her records to see what was going on. I spoke with someone at that office today and he wants her to have more tests done. All I was told that it appears to be a 4 centimeter Tumor in the left kidney and renal neoplasm was not ruled out. What does all this mean? My daughter is only 28 years old.
