I am 3 weeks of being diagnosed with renal carcenoma. Left Kidney has tumor(golf ball size) at the top. I was told by the surgeon that he thinks the Kidney can be saved. I am receiving the robotic surgery. I was 17 years cancer free of female type cancer. Why does radiation not work on Kidney cancers. If you have had this surgery I would like to hear from you. I have a very low tolerance for pain unfotunately. Also what is the percentage of having cancer in the bladder associated with the kidney cancer. Thank you for your kindness in advance.
