Not sure what: Clear tissue may mean, but it is time to get a urne analysis and some blood work, and then decision about imaging or cystoscopy. You did not say if it was the kidney, its pelvis or ureter that was cancer. I would definitely call or visit your urologist.

Dr. James Ferguson
Pediatrics 46 years experience
More likely Allergy: Sinus infections are common in kids with allergies but tend to settle in quietly with facial pain, fever & persistent drainage. An acute sneezing fit is more likely the result of an exposure to a major irritant or allergen that settled in his nasal passages, triggering the event.Steroid naal sprays are sometimes helpful for this type of event.Contact your doc & review the situation for further rx.
