I was diagnosed with a Wilms tumor (kidney) in 2007. I had my right kidney removed and I now have a reoccurence in the chest and possibly lung area. I am looking for a cancer treatment center that would be the best for my case, as it is rather rare. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

I'm pretty new to this site but I've read a lot of the postings. I see Cleveland listed several times. I go to IU Med Center at Indianapolis. Maybe someone can give you advise that has Wilms. I lost right kidney in 2006 and now have cancer in left kidney. Looking for answers myself. Keep up your spirits and check back often to the sight. Good Luck! Enjoy your Christmas!

What doctor are you seeing at IU Med? Are you happy with their medical services?

Hi:

I would say MD Anderson in Houston, Tx. I was lucky and got good treatment in Birmingham, Al at Brookwood hospital but they used Sutent for me which was the lastest and greatest front line treatment for my advanced Kidney Cancer that was in my lungs and liver. It just depends and what part of the country your are located.

md andersen. Cleveland Clionic. Sloan Ketterring (expect to a nmber ehre where they care more more niversity of Chicago. Figlin in So California (altho he is somewhat a staff of one); Johns Hopkins.

The difference between seeing an RCC specialist and a general oncologist could save your life.

Hi, you mentioned Figlin in Southern CA. Is this the name of the doctor? Can you tell me more about him or where he treats at? Or, any others you have heard of in So Cal?

Thank you so much!!!
