Ask Dr. Gott 11/4

DEAR DR. GOTT: I recently went on a trip that involved traveling 1,100 miles. During that time, I developed a blood clot in my right leg that moved into the bottom of both lungs. Because of this, I had several tests done. One was a CT scan, and, during this, they incidentally found what appeared to be a tumor on one of my kidneys. I was given the anticoagulant Coumadin to start immediately and told to check out the kidney problem when I got home.
