  • The Physical
  • Hello Mr. Baker! I'm Dr. Karsen Noma, I've been informed of your state and we noticed some abnormalities in your bloodtest
  • Blood Test Signs
  • The Tests
  • It appears here that there is a large tumor located on the left kidney, I need a nephrectomy as soon as possible to verify if it's cancerous
  • After a few weeks of intense lower back pain, unintentional weight loss, fever, and fatigue, Jason Baker noticed blood in his urine. He went in for a physical to have his health assessed and his mind put at ease.
  • The Results
  • In addition the symptoms experienced, the blood sample taken from Mr. Baker showed a low red blood cell count (anemia), and a high level of calcium. This concerned Dr. Noma, and she issued a CT scan to search for any apparent tumors.
