Kidney mass

Back in October 2018 a CT scan showed a 4.7cm mass on my right kidney. The VA said they were not concerned so they never told me about it. I found it while reading my online health records. Followed up with a urologist and another scan in February. The mass has grown to 6.7cm in that short of time. Doctor wants to take the kidney out. Any advice would be appreciated. God bless all and thanks, Randy

I had a 15 cm cancer on my kidney at the same time as I had tongue cancer.  The Dr. never mentioned it until it was revealed by another Dr. 3 months later.  His explanation was that if the tongue cancer wasn't cured than it wouldn't have made a difference.  It was encapsulated and not about to spread.  I then had it removed, the kidney was almost all eaten up by then.  No problems since
