Hi Everyone,

I got this link today via social media. It looks very interesting and I thought I would share it. It's subtitled "A Patient-friendly Summary of the 11th International Kidney Cancer Symposium." I've browsed some of it and I'll be reading a lot of the articles.
I hope it's helpful to all.

David,
Very informative paper... I was glued to it for a couple hours last night. In particular, I was trying to get clarification on removal of lymph nodes for Stage 1 RCC and i was happy to read a presentation on the very subject. Appreciate your efforts in sharing the link, and more importantly goading me to read the same...:-). Thanks again.

-Lotus

I finished reading the "Patient Summary" pages 66-69...wow, what a disconnect between patients & Urologists/ Doctors.
This chasm must improve. Patients deserve better!

Adman,
I saw that and I couldn't believe it either!

David,

I must be the only tech challenged person here. I've been trying to copy and paste your link and google keeps bringing me back to your original post on CSN, not the report. Has anyone else had this problem?

No problem here, Alice. Are you maybe pasting it into a search engine instead of into the url field?

Sorry David - my bad. Tex - good diagnosis again; that apparently was exactly what I was doing. Thank you both.
