Customer Question

Hello,
My father has been diagnosed with a "three-dimensional formation of the right kidney" and was referred to a urologist-oncologist consultation with a further surgery. He does not live in the UK, but can come for his treatment here. Please, advise me what options are available for him and where would be the best clinic for him to have the treatment. Thank you.

Hi
There is no kidney disease, called three dimentional formation.
Do you mean he has a tumor?
What exactly does the scan report say?
I don't believe he will be covered by the NHS unless he is a citizen of the UK.
Are you talking about paying privately for surgery?

The ultra-sound report says "kidney structure is changed: there is an ISO echo genie rounded shape formation with an even edge in the lower segment of the medial contour. D 31x29mm.

He needs an MRI to look at this better.
If this is a cyst, for example, nothing needs to be done. In any case, an ultrasound needs to be followed up with a CT or MRI scan.
I suspect there is more on the report, and they think this is a tumor.
If that is the case, you should contact the premier cancer hospital in the UK and talk to their surgical oncology department. Ask them WHO specifically, does this surgery the most. It will likely be a group of doctors to chose from.
