We strongly believe it has been caused by his previous workplace. He welded hexivalent chromium for many many years. This causes heavy metals poisoning, anyone else out there experience this ? Or something similar?

I worked in military electronics for just three years but was expised to daily fumes and skjn contact with TCE (trichloroethylene)  which is a clraner/degreaser. that may well have been used to clean mwtal before welding it.  Suggest you look into that as well.  My oncologist says it was more likely than not the cause kf my kidney cancer.  Studies show a major increase in risk of kidney and liver cancer over that ofpeople never exposed.  It was ckommonly used in a number of industries during the 50sthrough 80s. when it began to be questioned as a cause of cancer. Worth looking into.
