North Carolina says Roy Williams' surgically removed kidney tumor was not cancerous.
In a statement Tuesday, the school says tests have determined it is a benign growth that is often indistinguishable from kidney cancer on X-rays and doesn't spread like a cancerous tumor would.
Williams also has a tumor on his left kidney, but according to the school, doctors say there is ``a good chance'' that growth is the same as the one removed last week. Doctors plan to biopsy that tumor next week and won't perform a second surgery if the tumor is the same.
The school has said Williams is expected to be back for the start of preseason practice.
