I am a metastatic renal cell cancer survivor (tumor free for 4 years now) - and I read many posts here that ask about followup. I saw my oncologist recently who gave me copies of the NCCN Practice Guidelines in Oncology - Kidney Cancer (National Comprehensive Cancer Network). He told me that these guidelines are the 'gospel' for oncologists (and there are guidelines for every type of cancer). I am attaching the website address here.
You may want to review this information with your doctor to ensure you receive the required (and very necessary) followup for your cancer.
