I have just been diagnosed with stage I (3cm tumor) found accidently while looking for kidney stones, as I have a history with them and yes they found one in each kidney but also found the"shadow" which the MRI showed was a solid tumor. I am a teacher and have several major commitments to my students in the next few weeks so I am putting off the surgery for 7 weeks. Everyone I work with, my family and neighbors are all giving me a hard time about this decision. I felt very comfortable with my decision when I was speaking to the doctor about what needed to happen but now am having doubts because everyone acts like I am putting myself at risk. Anyone had experience with this issue?
