Wanted to intraduce myself. I'm 62 yr. old female with diabeties who has been told 3 times in the last 5 yrs. that I have cancer. 2004 1st.time,rare breast cancer--mastectomy. Jan.2009 2nd. time, DCIS breast cancer--mastectomy. No treatment either time. Now on the 7th of this month I was told that I have renal cell carcinoma, 3.5cm. I'm scheduled for the open surgery on the 27th. It's all contained inside the rt.kidney and they say once removed that I won't have to have any treatments. From reading these boards, I know I'm in for some hard pain. Hopefully my strong constitution will help get me through this once again. Thanks to all of you for the support you give.
