I couldn't just sit around and do nothing like my doctors suggested.


They didn't want me to do anything or to take herbs or herbal remedies, but I had to try something - they just wanted me to do dialysis!

This program allowed me to take control of my health. I went from Stage 4 to Stage 3 kidney disease.


It was easy to do and my BUN, creatinine and anemia are all in better ranges.

Hi

Your dad has had his affected kidney removed, can I just check that you mean 6 cms??? and not inches, because that's a rather massive tumor and doesn't relate to a stage 2. Generally speaking a T2 tumour is relatively treatable with little after effect, as in spread, because there's no lymph node involvement and no secondary cancer noted. Usually spread relates to a different staging, and I assume some radiotherapy has been done to coincide with the surgery? Depending on when the cancer was removed, your dad should be seen by a cancer specialist at agreed regular interval, for approximately 2 - 5 yrs. It is after 5 yrs or so, being tumor free, the patient is considered cured.


It's perfectly normal for you to worry, as we all do with our family, but cancer is a highly monitored disease and cancer specialist are more abundant. Monitoring patients with cancer or after cancer treatment is usually common place and done so to maintain the treatment results. Your dad is in good hands.

All the best.

They do not do biopsies on kidney cancer. What you are referring to is surgery

Stage cannot be determined by biopsy.

?T2? refers to the tumor stage, not the cancer stage.

However, a T2 is a tumor less than 7cm and confined to the kidney making it a T2 N0 M0 stage II, which a 5 year survival rate of 96%, so yes there is a small chance of recurrence.

Staged T2 means no detection in surrounding organs or lymph nodes, depends on the type of cancer as to the treatment plan, even if all cancer is removed some may be given chemo or radiation to kill any possible remaining cells for long term remission.


Follow up testing with 6 mthly CT scans will more than likely be in the plan to check for recurrence, in the early stages it has nearly a 70% long term remission rate.

Try not to live in fear of what the future holds as it clouds the time you have with your dad in the present, my dad, mother in law & little girl are all in remission.

He will need to be assessed by an oncologist after the surgery to get a full diagnosis of the stage and grade... The grade of the cancer could actually be more important than the stage. Kidney cancer can be cured if caught soon enough in an early stage, but it is also a sneaky cancer that tends to be recur within 6mos.- especially if it's one of high grade - usually in the surgery site, the lungs, the bones, the liver, the bladder or the brain. The oncologist will do an eval. of the cancer and will likely recommend a medication Kidney cancer does not respond to traditional chemo or radiation, but radiation can help a bit and be used to relieve pain if it spreads to the bone...
Adjuvent meds. include meds. like interferon/interleuken
