If you have never seen a issue of Cure, or read it online, here is your chance for more info. My copy arrived on Thursday and there is finally a full article on Kidney Cancer and the drugs that are available.
In addition to describing the drugs/types that have and are being used for kidney cancer, there are some others that are in early clinical trials. If you want to wach how a partial nephrectomy is performed, log on to: www.curetoday.com/reining_in_renal_cancer
When I was first Dx with Stage IV Clear Cell RCC in 2006, I was only offered surgery because it was only in my kidney, liver, and lymph nodes. And since they felt they got it all (not-it recurred in 07 and 08) I didn't fit any of the drug trials because there was no active site they could track. And at that time there was only Nexavar and Sutent. I was not and don't look forward to ever having to go on drugs, but it looks like what the research is turning out is getting better with time.
