A biopsy shows the tumor on North Carolina coach Roy Williams' kidney is benign.
A biopsy on the kidney of North Carolina Tar Heels basketball coach Roy Williams revealed no cancer, according to Andrew Carter of the Charlotte Observer.
North Carolina issued a statement Thursday about the results:
Dr. Eric Wallen, professor of urology at UNC, says as a result of the biopsy, coach Williams will not require surgery on the left kidney.
"The result of the biopsy of the tumor on the left side is great news for coach Williams and his family," said Wallen. "He is recovering very well and we will continue to follow his progress. In the meantime, he can return to his normal schedule, including the team's first practice on October 13th."
