Testimonials

Radical Nephrectomy, Nephrology; Dr. Mohan Keshavamurthy;Bangalore.

Ganesh underwent a routine urological check up at a Fortis health camp where he discovered major health issue despite leading a healthy life. Dr. Mohan Keshavamurthy, Consultant Urologist and Transplant Surgeon, found a vague growth in his right kidney after ultrasound scan evaluation and suspected some kind of tumour. The growth could spread to the adjacent organ, his liver. There was no evidence suggesting spread to any other part of the body. Ganesh had no symptoms. On further evaluation it was found to be a rare form of kidney cancer called Synovial Sarcoma. One of the most common types is called the Renal Cell Carcinoma which, though being dangerous is treatable if detected early. The doctors discussed the problem with Ganesh in detail and decided to conduct a Radical Nephrectomy (removal of the cancerous kidney). During the surgery the tumour appeared cancerous and it was removed.After the surgery, Ganesh recovered remarkably. The team which included a Pathologist and Oncologist finally decided on the treatment plan. Ganesh was given a clear understanding of the status and a plan for chemotherapy was made. He has finished with his chemotherapy and is absolutely fine now.
