Hi again everyone. I went to the dr on Monday and he said 80% chance it is cancer. I go tomorrow for a bone scan and chest x-ray for staging. Is it common to stage before surgery and the tumor has been diagnosed? What other staging tests should I have if it is cancer? Of course, surgery will be scheduled soon for a partial laproscopic nephrectomy with robotic assistance.
Thanks much for your knowledge on this subject!
