Kidney Cancer Part 1: Get the tumour removed!

LC is a 50-year-old male. He and his entire family together with a sister-in-law, came to see us on 14 August 2011. His sister –in-law is a nurse. She was a participant of the International Nurses Conference held in Kuala Lumpur a year ago. And I was a speaker at that conference. She wanted me to help her brother-in-law who had a tumour in his right kidney.

An ultrasound done on 8 August 2011 indicated a 1.3 x 1.6 cm cyst at the upper pole of his left kidney and a focal lesion, 4.8 x 4.4 cm at the upper pole of his right kidney. A CT scan done on 11 August 2011 confirmed the presence of a 5.2 x 5.7 x 5 cm solid tumour in the upper pole of his right kidney. There was a 1.5 cm cyst in the upper pole of his left kidney.

Based on the above medical reports, we suggested the following:

  1. The right kidney tumour has to be removed. From our experience no drug or herbs would be able to reverse the situation.
  2. However, before undergoing the operation, it would be wise to do a PET scan first. This is to determine if the cancer has spread to any other parts of the body. If the cancer has spread extensively elsewhere, then surgical removal – although necessary, would not be meaningful. There is now a company which does PET scan at a cheaper price than the hospitals. So go there if money is a concern. (Later: we were told that a PET scan that LC did cost only RM 2,000 against RM 5,000 to RM 6,000 if done in certain hospitals).
  3. LC should be aware that the cancer can spread even if surgery is done successfully. The targets of metastasis are the lungs, liver, bones and brain. Over the years we have patients who came to us with such metastasis after an apparent “successful operation.”  Read our story, Kidney-Lung-Brain Cancer: Sutent = Heart Damange.
  4. After the operation, we suggest that LC change his lifestyle and diet. He can take herbs too if he believes in what we are doing.
  5. LC  and his family agreed to the above suggestions  and would wait for about three more weeks before undergoing the operation. They would not want to do an operation during the Chinese Ghost month!

LC underwent a PET/CT scan after meeting us. The report on 18 August 2011 indicated “a right renal mass as malignant and a small metastatic node is seen situated between the right kidney and L2. No other suspicious lesion is detected”.


I presented our case studies on Kidney Cancer in my talk at the MMA Monthly Joint Clinical Meeting of doctors from three hospitals – JSH, PSH and HAS –  in Johor Baru on 30 October 2006. Below are three patients who had undergone surgery for their right kidney cancer. The first patient was a 40-year-old female. After about five years the cancer recurred in her liver. A 30-year-old male also had liver recurrence after only two years.

Watch this video. This 53-year-old male had surgery in 1997. After the surgery, the surgeon did not consider mop-up treatment like radiotherapy or chemotherapy necessary. There was no medication to take either. Lee came to know us through our book:  Cancer Yet They Live, which was given to him by a friend. Since then he has been on our therapy. Lee has been doing well – as of 2011, it has been more than 15 years now!
