            Last appt outcome: my tumor has to come out, dr stated the MRI confirmed 2 cm mass still looks like cancer but will confirm after removal, going with the robotic procedure partial removal with notes due to location of tumor possible full removal. Size is small but the location of tumor is very close to both arteries going into right kidney so will be difficult to remove but hes still targeting on partial removal of K...

                      I'm age 54 with Kidney cancer RRC clear cell on 11/19/14 I had a 2cm tumor removed by Robotic procedure right Kidney partialectomy. After surgery Pathology report shows a Positive Margin for tumor left behind my tumor location was against artery. March 2015 had my 1st CT scan follow up it showed 1 cm spot on Kidney could be scar tissue, 5mm spot on lung could be cyst. I go back in 6 months for a follow up if they grow we know it's cancer again. I wanted a scan in 3 months but Dr felt to much radiation and said 6 months is ok. I still don't agree and I pray Dr is correct, Praying for good results after late Sept 2015 re-scan.
