Hi All, My Husband has TCC Kidney cancer that was removed in 1999. After a year it has moved to the bladder. He has being dealing with bladder cancer  since 2000.I didn"t understand why they didn't do any follow-up with chemo and it was several months to about a year for through check-up. That when they found tcc bladder cancer .We have been to MD Anderson several time.Our Doctor here in New Orleans wanted to be more aggressive and remove the Bladder . My husband wanted a second an opinion and went Md Anderson . The Doctor at Md., said that it wasn't time to remove the bladder. About two years ago my husband had his interferon and bcg treatment and the Doctor notice a bulge on the outside of his Bladder . Went back to Md Anderson and they discover that the cuff from the kidney surgery had not being removed.My Husband has continue with his treatment.This past week my Husband found a lump in his leg. It is pretty big. To my horror I ask him did he notice the lump before. He said that it has been their since August. But it was small .Over the years I have tried to encourage him  to be more aggressive . He continue to said,that  their is nothing he can do and that the Doctors are doing everything .I have tried so many times to talk to him over the years. He just say a few words and walk away. I love him with all my heart and soul and will support him  for ever. I have been numb for 10 yrs now and sad because he will not talk about cancer and I feel this in end will cause his life. Victoria
