Could high protein in blood, high creatinine and low blood count with history of having FSGS indicate tumour?

Hi, I will start with my husband has FSGS. He goes to his nephrologist every 6 months. He has been in remission for the past few years since a treatment through NIH (suggested by doctor). The last bloodwork revealed high protein, high creatinine and low blood count. The doctor believes there is internal bleeding. My husband has not seen any blood in the stool. He is short of breath, and has had diarrhea although I am not sure he has told the doctor yet. The doctor has ordered a colonoscopy and also stated he believes there is a benign tumor.
