T2a N0 MX.


10 cm


Renal cell carcinoma. Clear cell type.

No sarcomatoid features.

No rhabdoid features.

Tumor necrosis: not identified.

Fuhrman grade 2.

Tumor extension: limited to kidney.

Margins uninvolved by invasive carcinoma

Lymphovascular invasion: not identified.

Other tumors: none.

Negative for metastatic carcinoma.


Follow up X-ray and CT scan in October.


I am breathing better. Vigilant, and certainly the lifestyle changes are yielding results (my BP at the check up today was 122/84. I've not seen that in *years*). 


Yeah, this is not a club you want to belong to willingly. But I will submit that once you're in, you fight. You fight with everything you got. I got the scars, like my brothers and sisters. Day to day, we can do this.
