Short history since I haven't posted in awhile. My husband had esophageal cancer and then a year later found a mass on each of his kidneys. The doctor said, at the time, it was likely cancer and likely a re-occurrence of the EC cancer, but what is in one will be in the other. They did a partial on the larger of the two masses and found it was “kidney” cancer and not EC. He had his follow-up three month appointment and the doctor is now saying the mass that is still there has not changed and may not even be cancer. I’m skeptical (probably a side effect of a spouse with cancer). Do you think that the Dr. is just giving him a mental break before they talk about another surgery? Of course I have said nothing to my husband about my skepticism.
