I was recently diagnosed with a tumor the size of a grape (small) on the lower part of my left kidney and I am scheduled to have a partial nephrectomy in about 10 days. I was informed by the doctor who found the tumor that it would not be necessary for me to see an oncologist, but I want to leave no stone unturned in the treatment of my cancer. Has anyone else had similar advice? If you have had such advice but decided to see an oncologist anyhow, was it worth the effot?
