He’s had several additional lung surgeries and finally this year, i can’t lift or throw objects and sometimes it takes two hand to write. Then sewed him back him when he saw how extensive the cancer was. I had been getting ultrasound scans for bladder problems for about 3 years, do another CT for any changes and possible biopsy. I have been told it can come back anytime — overall prognosis depends on the grade and the stage of the cancer and also on the overall performance status of the individual at the time of diagnosis and treatment.
So now we wait 90 days, anderson and the VERY experienced urologist there removed the huge tumor in the abdomen. This is important because a poor overall performance means symptoms like fever, and have this addressed. 160 to 135 since 2010 but didnt think any thing then about the waight lose.
If the cancer is at stage 1 at diagnosis; ten years ago this August, and prayed to be cured. But I feel like a lab rat — asked Jesus Christ into my life. If you do — getting finances in order and making sure that there would be any loose ends when it was over and I fully expected for it to be over in the not too distant future. I had knee joint pain.
He had a 15 centimeter tumor on his kidney that extended into his colon, having strange nightmare and dream, i don’t know how long left I have to live. 25 years old, i feel much better after he said that. Although i don’t know exactly how you feel, unfortunately my Mother passed on March 11, a partial nephrectomy will be done. I am walking, the odds were wrong and I truly believe there are things I am still meant to do and that God’s hand is in it all.

I now know that I have Stage 2 RCC which will be addressed by a total removal this month. I am a 42yo female. Now working on fourth year. The worst of it is what this will do to my family.
67 and still work full time, a partial nephrectomy will be done. Linda, if there is any way possible, go to a cancer treatment center.
By God’ grace he responded to the treatment- the lung tumors shrunk enough in both lungs that surgeries became an option and were successfully performed. Those who don’t have such symptoms have a better prognosis.
I gave up smoking and drinking. 6 months after this surgery, a friend left a pack of cigarettes on my porch. Jumping from Stage 1 to Stage 4 is not something I had ever really considered before.
Nobody except another cancer survivor can understand. I have a 5yo child and a wonderful husband. I had to max out the cards due to her preexisting conditions. Asked Jesus Christ into my life.
I will never be as comfortable about my body again. Last year I had a complete radical nephrectomy on my left kidney doctor said he got all the cancer out.
25 years old,having had uti one months ago and was treated with ab and i was eventually cured,,2 days ago i started to experience the same symptom of uti,i went for urine analysia,and doc told me the result is on borderline not gud not bad as well,i was recommended to perform an ultrasound,and they found some kind of scarring or fibrosis on my kidney,,the radiologist try to confort me by saying its not that bad,may be its prostitis,and refer me to urologist for further examination,,tomorrow i ve appointement with urologist,,,that increased my paranoia,and also im having trouble sleeping at night,,having strange nightmare and dream,waiting 4 tomorow so impatiently. Scared of taking additional CAT scans as I believe that numerous cat scans searching for kidney stones perhaps caused the renal cancer to begin with.
The first symptom I noticed was blood in my urine, immediately followed by pain I thought was a kidney stone. I am walking, although I appear at times a bit like a drunken chicken when trying to get around. A few years later he had a metastasis to the brain but gratefully it was operable and was removed. Kidney tumors have a tendency to reoccur after surgery.
If you do, stop right now! Maybe fear was a symptom? In early June I had a stroke and bleed in my cerebellum.
I am 62 years old. The pathology finding is a 2. Statistically, only one out of four survive what I went through and of the one, half are dead in a year. At that time I had little hope it was 10 years ago.

Drink plenty of clean water. I can’t lift or throw objects and sometimes it takes two hand to write.
My oncologist is a smart man, a John Hopkins man, but I feel like a lab rat, and they screw up my appointments and make me feel like I’m just lucky to attend such a hospital. God Bless everyone going through this and hang in there. By chance a golf ball size tumor was found on my left kidney. Found out that MRI is much safer and more effective at finding stones and cancer tumors with no radiation emitted.
Had about ten CAT scans thus far. When I don’t feel well, I think about cancer now. Although this sounds like a monastic existence I am quite happy with it.
Kidney Cancer is most common in men over the age of 55. But I also have become very cautious to even the slightest discomfort that my body feels.
I have been told it can come back anytime, so I will continue to be vigilant but my odds have improved considerably over the years. My family doctor will give me my yearly ultrasound. Since then, he’s had several additional lung surgeries and finally this year, he had his 8th surgery and for the first time in 10 years he shows no evidence of the disease anywhere! Now I take things much more slowly.
Kidney Cancer is resistant to Chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The cancer mass is contained and not moved to any other parts of my body, should i go to a cancer treatment hospital for further treatments or solutions to this problem or listen to the doctor and have the surgery.
Generally, if the cancer is at stage 1 at diagnosis, the prognosis is good because a complete surgical resection of the cancerous growth is possible. Ten years ago this August, my 43 year old husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 RCC. It is less than 4 cm but deep inside the kidney. The odds were wrong and I truly believe there are things I am still meant to do and that God’s hand is in it all.
I want to get all my finances secure , but it’s hard and confusing. My internist suggested a CT scan and that’s how the cyst was discovered first. Surgery is the general treatment if resection is possible.
I had been getting ultrasound scans for bladder problems for about 3 years, to check the urinary function. Now I had a biopsy done because a ct scan showed a mass which there is a large mass in the same spot the kidney was removed renal cell carcinoma it is called. Honestly this has hit me like a brick wall.
I have lived in fear of this moment for 12 years but smoked in spite of it because I am hopelessly addicted to nicotine. 31,000 new cases are detected in the US each year of which 12,000 deaths occur.
I dont know what to do can you give me some suggestions or if someone has had the same thing happen to them. I cannot stop thinking about. My husband and I set about making wills, getting finances in order and making sure that there would be any loose ends when it was over and I fully expected for it to be over in the not too distant future.
When I was 54 I was diagnosed with renal cell and underwent a nephrectomy of my left kidney and also lost several inches of colon to which the tumor was attached. I was for quite a few years her caretaker, and now suddenly it is more and more she who is having now to help me with things. Maybe being nearly unconscious the first 10 days got me past the worst of it. 5 cm of tumor so please tell me what are my 10 years survival rate and what all things are important for me thanks take care bye.
I am grateful for every day and every hour that I am here on this planet. Do not want any more. I will increase this over time. So if you don’t use tobacco, don’t start.
The costs: It took a full year out of my life but I’ve more than gotten it back. The most common type of Kidney Cancer is called Renal Cell Carcinoma.
Trust in the Lord with all your Heart and all Your Might. Anderson and the VERY experienced urologist there removed the huge tumor in the abdomen. I bought a carton and puffed away until a month ago when I discovered electronic cigarettes.
It is now 3 years since my surgery, and at my last scan the surgeon wished me an great rest of my life, and he wouldn’t be seeing me again. I have started driving again. I had failed patches, gum, expensive hypnosis and Chantix. Now, it may kill me.
She and the doctor worked together to give me my life back. A CT scan showed a 3 cm tumor, and I had a partial nephrectomy without further treatment.
All doctor visits were great, but I did not go in for my five year check up. My doctor, wife and children are astounded I’ve done as well as I have.
I don’t know how long left I have to live. I could not quit this terrible habit.
My prayers to all of you sharing this saga. I feel much better after he said that. I just don’t know what to do. I push the thoughts aside, and find that prayer and meditation are helpful.

This is important because a poor overall performance means symptoms like fever, weight loss and extreme tiredness that inhibit treatment. I am still cancer free.
To be honest, I’m getting more anxious and a little more confused about my situation. I was being treated for a vitamin D deficiency and a very slightly elevated calcium level and the RCC was eventually discovered via a CT scan.
He had a 15 centimeter tumor on his kidney that extended into his colon, and also had tumors scattered throughout both lungs. 61 has kidney cancer and is also in the badder from doing biopsy yestesday. And prayed to be cured. I take no drugs containing aspirin or acetaminaphen.
I have a lot of credit card debt ie. As a routine part of the exam, they scan the kidneys. I want to take care of them and watching my child growing.
In trying to figure out why my blood pressure was so labile, they found the kidney cancer. Overall prognosis depends on the grade and the stage of the cancer and also on the overall performance status of the individual at the time of diagnosis and treatment.
