2nd kidney also has lesion

Grandfather had kidney cancer @73 — didn’t do any operation but just took homeopathy and survived for more than 10 years

My father got diagnosed with highly aggressive lungs cancer at stage 4 and survived hardly for an year

i was not so lucky Nd got diagnosed at 28 with left kidney RCC by chance had no symptoms 

got left radical nephrectomy was great for last 8 years but had some high haemoglobin and erythrocytes — so did upper abdomen MRI and doctors found out 2.9  lesion in right kidney now

my left kidney lesion was 2.5 fuhrman grade 1 simple cell non aggressive 

really didn’t think it could come back so early and also not sure whether partial nephrectomy is possible or not

Will turn 36 now and now not sure what’s my prognosis would be , also maybe dialysis and all

This sucks

    You need an expert

    You need to dixcus the best outcome with an expert in Kidney Cancer perhaps at a  University hospital.  Sometimes they can do an abaltion or cyro procedure.

    Sorry to hear that. It’s

    Sorry to hear that. It’s definitely terrible luck to have recurrence for a stage 1 G1 tumor. I’m very new here but were  there any red flags in your pathology report? 

    Wishing you the very best!
