Many folks here are well clued-up on kidney cancer but it's a big subject and not everyone knows it all so I hope the link below will contain info. of value to at least some members here. I found it valuable. It's a one hour workshop titled "The Challenges of Coping with Cancer and Other Health Problems" with a panel of 4 experts giving talks followed by questions from some of the thousands of people who were listening in.
I was pleased to hear good treatment of the "Grapefruit Effect" and another topic I alluded to in my first appearance on these threads but which no-one here seemed to be aware of, viz. the danger of taking St. John's Wort along with some cancer therapies. There is excellent info. on many topics like keeping good records, not being shy of asking questions, seeking second opinions, having a written treatment plan and so on.
Cancer Care, which has been around for many years, has had 3 similar one hour workshops in the last couple of years devoted to kidney cancer. I haven't had time yet to listen to them but I'm sure they will all prove valuable as well. If you get on at the above link you can easily find your way to the kidney cancer recordings.
