I had my 6 month results today and my tests were all clear! While I am happy about that and I plan to live my life like I'm cancer free, my urologist has concerns for a higher recurrence rate for me due to the fact that I am fairly young to have kidney cancer and I have a family history. My paternal grandfather died of kidney cancer that went to his brain. This has got me wondering, does anyone else here have a family history of kidney cancer? My son is 26 years old and just had a baseline ultrasound so they can keep an eye on him. He will be tested every 2 years. I'm concerned for my sister, too, so I wanted to ask about family histories of kidney cancer. Thanks!
