You may have kidney cancer. Although this symptoms often only occurs late in the disease process.
There are very few symptoms or signs of early kidney cancer, most are picked up incidentally when patients are have abdominal ultrasounds or CAT scans for other ailments.
Kidney cancer surgery and treatment has come a long way over recent years and Gold Coast Urologist Dr Elmes now removes almost all kidney cancers with laparoscopic or 'key-hole' surgery.
Some smaller kidney cancers can be cut out whilst leaving behind much of the remaining healthy part of the affected kidney, known as a partial nephrectomy.
Dr Elmes was one of the first urologist on the Gold Coast to perform this procedure robotically.
