Hi, @oldirish1. It seems that with kidney cancer, the more knowledge you have, the better ( don't know about other cancers). It is absolutely essential that you have the best, most qualified medical team – oncologist, urologist, whoever. It is essential that you have cancer screenings for the REST of your life! In my case, I have a sarcoma so I had to find the nearest sarcoma center and link up with them through the good offices of my oconlogist. It's less expensive to do it that way than to incur travel expenses trying to commute – rather like having a second opinion. Two kinds of cancer – cancer cells from your original kidney cancer or an entirely different cancer – can occur at any time to anyone. I've had three so far – breast , skin and now kidney – all unrelated, but with all the knowledge I've gained, I think I'm better able to wage a good battle with the evil cancer!! Please ask questions and demand answers! If you're not satisfied with any part of your medical experience, please contact a more knowledgeable doctor no matter where located. BTW, my first post-surgery CT and MRI are scheduled next Friday!
They found mine when I went in for normal exam. Magin my surprise when I went back to the doctor and he says that you have to have your left kidney removed and fast.
