Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das.

Look, nothing is more precious than life. If you are dead, then what will the function of the money you earned.

Secondly, your history definitely indicates towards a neoplasm of kidney / adrenal gland. And one more thing, no one except the pathologist can tell you what it is actually. For this, operation has to be done.

They are right about seeding. So, operation is must. What will you do by keeping it in your body? Better to go for operation. Do not neglect it. If you are taking it lightly, then you will have very big trouble, in near future.

So, go with the doctor for living.
