Hi there. My dad was just diagnosed with RCC last week. He doesn't have all his test results back yet and hasn't received any treatment BUT I wanted to let you know that my dads hand/fingers are not working properly either on his right side (the same side as the kidney with cancer). I don't know what it means though. He can't pick things up or grasp onto them.
If you find out before me whats causeing it please let me know and I will do the same for you. He should have all his test results back Wednesday (I HOPE!).
Take care
