| | my father may have kidney cancer
Hello, I am trying to find out some info. and I'm hoping someone out there can help me. A few months ago, they found a large mass in my father's kidneys...my father's a very stubborn man. He refuses to have a biopsy done after the doctor told him of the possible problems he can encounter, my father signed a privacy form to basically keep his wife and entire family in the dark or give any info. about what's wrong with him. After that, the doctor started sending a nurse to visit him in his home, where he would lock my mother out of the room. Now, I found out that my father was hospitalized for the night because he was complaining about shortness of breath...and again forbade the doctor to talk to my mother about his condition. My question is, based on some of the things I described here, can anyone give me an educated guess as to what may be going on with my father? Has anyone ever heard of shortness of breath being a side effect of any form of cancer? Appreciate any info.....thank you.
