Unfortunately, I am a new member of this group. Last Thursday, I was diagnosed with RCC. It was an incidental find while looking for a reason for low blood iron. The final follow-up was a CT scan last Thursday morning. When I had a call from the Dr by noon to come in for a visit that afternoon, I knew things were not good.
The only good thing is that it appears to be confined to the right kidney and there is no apparent spreading to adjacent organs or lymph nodes. Right now, I'm waiting to see a 2nd urologist, who will likely be doing the surgery.
