I was wondering if anybody has had interferon alpha for mets in the lung from renal cell cancer. I have been having injections 3 times a week and so far my tumor has shrunk. Has anybody had the same reaction.
my step dad had interferon 4 times a week for 1 year. his cancer had spread to bone, lungs and he was completely clear in 1 year. they had given him 6 weeks to live. he lived another 15 years!
I have renal cell cancer stage 3 - 3 yr survivor - I haven't heard much about this drug but it sounds very interesting - I had heard there is no treatment.....I'll ask my oncologist next time I see him
Hi Louisee, Glad to hear of your positive experience. I am having CT scan today and expect to start treatment on Jan 14th. Offered interferon alpha or clinical trial of either interferon or it and interleukin and chemotherapy. I had cancer in my left kidney with spread to lymph system. Let me know how you go. Helen
if you will go to the kidney cancer website, the information is huge on this. the site is firstname.lastname@example.org
