translocation renal cell carcinoma

Posted by @edmom in Cancer, Oct 27, 2011

My 19 yo daughter just had surgery to remove a mass on her kidney. It was diagnosed as an aggressive type of renal cell carcinoma--a translocation. I am feeling hopeless and helpless. Are there survivors?

Dear Edmom,
My wife was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma that has spread in many places. I hear your pain and fear. There are a few key therapies to look into -- but check with your oncology doc: Sutent, Votrient, Terisol ... All these are 5 years old -- the newest drugs that work.

We are close to choosing a path for us.

My best to you.
