Wonder if any of you survivors have had ureter cancer?  Just got through a bout with breast cancer and happy to say they got cancer now facing this.  Surgury Feb. 11, 2013.  They will remove my kidney and part of my bladder.  As for as they know from CT scan has not spread but is highgrade.  Anybody had this or g

family member?  Thanks for reply.

hi Mountain Woman, I cannot believe there is someone who has had the exact 2 cancers I have had.  I also started with breast cancer..mastectomy in 

January 2009...then, this past  May 2013 was told I had ureter cancer. I also had my kidney, ureter and bladder cuff removed in June 2013. Both my

cancers were also high grade. How are you doing now after the surgery?  Did they want you to have any treatments? 


Best Wishes,

Hi cosmikit,

I have this ureter cancer too.  Mine was stage 3 with metastasis.  

My surgery was robotic and the recovery was very easy.  I can't have any additional treatments because my remaining kidney can't filter the chemo drugs.  I was offered a clinical trial.

We are amongst the few with this kind of cancer.  

Best to you,
