Diagnosed with kidney cancer (clear cell) in 2003 and had a radical nephrectomy (7cm tumour)
I had no further treatment except regular scans until June 2011 when I had a 1.5cm tumour (Fuhrman grade 2) removed from my left lung.
December 2012 my scan showed a solitary enlarged lymph node in my chest 1.2cm but this has remained unchanged.
January this year 2014 I was diagnosed with a lytic bone lesion in my spine L2 (no other areas) this was treated with 12 fractions of radiotherapy 36gy rapid arc not stereotactic.
Could someone advise on what would be a possible next stage of treatment for me and whether radiotherapy was a good idea, being that kidney cancer is so radio resistant .
