These days, Dr. Gleave said, more patients are having ultrasound or CT scans for other reasons and learning that there is a small lump on one of their kidneys. In the United States, the accepted practice is to take those tumors out. But, he asks, “Is that always necessary?” His university is participating in a countrywide study of people with small kidney tumors, asking what happens when those tumors are routinely examined, with scans, to see if they grow. About 80 percent do not change or actually regress over the next three years. With early detection, he said, “our net has become so fine that we are pulling in small fish as well as big fish.” Now, he said, “we have to identify which small fish we can let go.”
To me the best cure is one that helps the body heal itself faster. By aiding it, and not weakening it.

Tumors are formed daily in everyone, and they usually disappear just as quickly as they are formed. The difference, I think, between a tumor and what we call cancer is the size and degree of impact the "abnormality" has on the individual.
