A Life-Changing Routine Checkup: Overcoming Kidney Cancer

The Unexpected Discovery

At 40 years old, Mr. Wong, a successful businessman, never expected the results of a routine body check at THMC Medical Group to change his life. He had always enjoyed good health, didn't drink or smoke, and had no prevailing family history of major illnesses. Little did he know, a simple checkup would lead to the detection of kidney cancer.


Uncovering the Hidden Mass

The body check at THMC Medical Group involved comprehensive blood tests and an abdominal ultrasound. Much to his surprise, the reports revealed a 5cm mass in his left kidney. To further investigate the mass, Mr. Wong was referred for an MRI scan, which confirmed the presence of kidney cancer.


Seeking Expert Intervention

Upon the diagnosis, the medical professionals at THMC referred Mr. Wong to a skilled urologist. The specialist decided to perform a laparoscopic surgery to remove the cancerous mass. Fortunately, the pathology report indicated that it was Stage 1 kidney cancer, meaning the excision surgery would suffice as treatment.


A Cancer-Free Journey

Thanks to the early detection and prompt intervention, Mr. Wong didn't require chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment. The successful surgery allowed him to return to his normal, healthy life. Now, five years later, Mr. Wong remains cancer-free and is grateful for that life-changing routine checkup at THMC Medical Group.
