growth
Explanation:
"Expansivity" is the literal meaning of the word, but in this context the wording "3-cm expansivity" would sound odd in English. "3-cm growth" is the only wording that makes sense -- i.e., "a fairly well-demarcated 3-cm growth" in the kidney.

Thanks. I already told answerer 'orhon int' that I would use the word 'growth', but that reply seems to have disappeared.
