How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?

I am so sorry to hear that you are out of the study, Richard. I had my follow-up scan and am back in chemo. I had 4 small lesions appear on my scan- one is the same place where I had the surgery. The disease is still in my lymph system. We're trying a different combo of drugs. So far, so good, no reactions yet. I'll keep everyone posted.

Good luck Richard! I hope Interferon A is your magic bullet. I've just started doxil. Crazy road we're all on, but as long as we can stay on the road I guess it's all good....

So I don't often write here but let me say this. My brothers best friend has RCC for at least 14 years. He has liver mets. He lives in the DC area and went to NIH Hopkins etc. He settled for a doc in his local area that only gave him interferon. He had the infusions for a long long time like years. He has not evidence of disease. They are hard he said and his was urinating brown as he was losing muscle but he seems to be cured. So stay strong and know that for 14 years it worked for someone. He could not even tell me his histology when I asked so I cannot offer that. Sorry.
