Hi, just thought I would introduce myself. I just found this site. I was diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma in early April and had surgery at the end of April. Everything went well as far as that goes. The alien autopsy as I call it did not go as well. I had a 7.5 cm growth that extended into the fatty tissue but not out of the Kidney. The growth was aggressive and extended into the renal veil going towards the heart. Yikes I did not like the sound of that. It was a T3a NxMx grade 4 cancer. What is the long term outlook? Anyone else on the board had a similar experience? Thanks for any help.
