I had my left kidney removed 3 months ago. I'm terrified of CT scans because of the radiation. I had stage 2 cancer but a grade 4 tumor. Luckily the cancer was just localized to the kidney.( I'm a big believer in diet and exercise so maybe that helped the cancer from spreading). I eat lots of organic veggies,fruit, and some fish and chicken,all organic.I bike 100 miles a week back and forth to work. I have been told because I had a grade 4 tumor that there is a 50-50 chance the cancer will come back this year. Also if the cancer has spread it can spread to the lungs and brain.
I guess because I'm so health conscious the radiation from CT scans bothers me. Anyone can get cancer ,it does not discriminate. I have been very health conscious for the last 20 years,(I'm 49 now). The first 30 years of my life I was subjected to an enormous amount of second hand smoke constantly. This is a toxic world we live in. I'm a big believer in alternative healing methods and cancer prevention.
It just seems like every day we find out something new that causes cancer,and no matter how hard you try to stay healthy you still get cancer.
Well,problems are just opportunities in disguise. Maybe having kidney cancer was the best thing that ever happened to me.
