Doc says it was all contained in the kidney but I have a question. Do you mind if I post the report and get some feedback? Is there a way to attache it here??? probably not.

Furhman nuclear grade 2
Clear cell renal cell carcinoma
TNM descriptors: N/A
Primary Tumor: pT1b
Regional lymph nodes: none resected

Why were no lymph nodes resected? As always thank you for your help.There is narrative gross description but didn't think you would want to read all that. Will be happy to share if you do.

It was 6.8 cm which is 1 cm less than originally thought from the scan.

It sounds good to me; but, I am new. From all by reading it sounds good though. What makes it a b?

The size of it changed it to a b. I just wondered why they did not resect any lymphs....maybe i am not familiar enough with the anatomy of the kidney. Thanks!!
