My husband's nephew who is 21 years old was just diagnosed with Kidney cancer. I could not believe some one so young could get this although he does smoke 3 packs of cigarettes a day.
His surgery took about 6 hours and he had a terrible very large incision. The surgeon said he thinks he got all of the cancer and had to remove part of the kidney. We are still waiting for the pathology to come back to confirm that this cancer was contained and completely removed. I was surprised to find out that kidney cancer typically moves very slowely. Do you know any thing about Kidney Cancer and are there questions we should be asking his doctor for the follow up care.
