My father was diagnosed with having a cancerous tumor on his kidney. The whole kidney was scheduled to be removed, but the doctors found 2 small cancerous spots on his lungs. They are saying it's only about 2 millimeters. The doctor that was supposed to do the surgery is now refusing, saying he does not perform that type of surgery anymore. My question is, is there possibly a reason why the doc all of a sudden won't perform this surgery. The other doctor is saying it is necessary. Are my fathers chances of the cancer spreading further increased if he does have the surgery. We are so confused, and feel like were getting the run around from the doctors. PLease help, the time is ticking.
