Do you have any advice on kidney cancer
Alot of it depends on if it has spread of it is still encased (the tumor). I am speaking from personal experiance, I am not a Dr. I had it and had to have the entire Kidney removed.
Sometimes they can remove part of it but to be very safe it is best to take the entire kidney out.
Good News, if it has not spread and they remove kidney and find no other cancer in the body he has very very good chance of being fine, functioning on one kidney is not a big issue. Also will not need Chemo or Radiation.
Need more details to really know but things may not be as bad as it sounds.
