Let me first wish every single one of you the best of luck fighting cancer. you are all in thoughts and prayers.
My mother and father just informed me that he as a 1 cm tumor on the upper part of his kidney. they had the scans and the meeting with the Urologist. They keep me out of it because they did not want to worry me.
My father had a bout with Colon cancer 8 years ago and the Urologist said this is not related. The urologist said this is a very early cancer and when he cuts it out we need to forget about it. its not serious.
He said that he may also try to freeze it out. Cyroablation? i have done some research and i am just not sure of it. Lastly, the Urologist said its fine to schedule the surgery for mid dec. This is another one of my concerns.
So i am asking you all for a little advice.
1. is a 1cm tumor early?
2. Can they tell whether it invaded the renal vein?
3. Is cyroablatin or cyrotherapy safe.
and lastly is alright to wait a couple of months. .
They did notice a shadow back in 2011. so i am thinking its a slow growing tumor.
Thanks again for everything
