Best to Roy, his family, and UNC. I've always liked him.

That sucks...So, they are removing the tumor and testing to see if its cancer I assume??

Or is this more of a mass that they just want to remove but there is no cancer worry?

Not sure of the details yet, but did read his prognosis is "good".

According to Insidecarolina.com, he came through the surgery ok, and is expected to coach next month when practice starts.

Great news.

Still have the tumor in the left kidney to worry about, but assuming that one is benign like this one, he shouldn't miss any games this season.

Just another update...

The tumor in the second kidney was the same type, and therefore also benign.

Williams has been given the "all clear" to return to practice, and he will miss no time this season.

From Roy Williams's press conference at UNC's Media Day:

- Was experiencing heartburn
- Went in for his annual physical
- Had ultrasound and CT scan
- Tumors were discovered
- Was told there was 95% chance tumors were cancerous
- Has been cleared but will be monitored
- Called it a whirlwind 24 days
- Not up to working full time yet
- Instead, opts to stay home in mornings and then works in the afternoon
- Has been concerted effort to slow down
- Told the team at 10 PM the night before the first surgery so it would not leak out via social media
- Plans on coaching 6 to 10 more years assuming health allows him to
- Mike Krzyzewski called three times and Jeff Bzedlik sent ice cream
