Hi everyone, I'm new here as well. 4 weeks ago a CT scan & MRI revealed a 1.9 cm mass on my upper left kidney. 2 weeks ago I had a Da Vinci laparoscopic partial nephrectomy. Biopsy revealed Stage 1 Grade 2 cancer. It all happened so fast that I am just now starting to process the cancer diagnosis (they thought it was benign). I'm more than a little scared it will come back. I'm a very fit 47-year old female.
My husband thinks I shouldn't tell anyone it was cancer, but I would like to confide in my friends/family. I feel afraid and alone. Thoughts?
