The Path Report is in

Thank goodness for electronic medical records.  I got the path report today - both intraoperative and post operative.  Drum roll, please. 3 CM CLEAR CELL RENAL CELL CARCINOMA, FUHRMAN NUCLEAR GRADE 1, FOCALLY PRESENT AT PARENCHYMAL RESECTION MARGIN (pT1aNxMx).  Based on what I have read on on the ACS website and learned from the sage members of our on line community, I interpret this as being about as good as it gets, RCC-wise.  I of course will be diligent about surveillance, but it looks like I can breathe a bit easier about what's next, treatment-wise.  I see the surgeon next Friday.  Any thoughts on what are the critical topics to cover?

As always, thanks for all of your support and willingness to share.

Yes, outside of being a benign cyst, that's about as good as a path report can get. I'm very happy for you :)
