kidney cancer

I was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma of my left kidney
in April. The tumor, which was the size of a volleyball, was
removed on May 14. Thankfully, there is no evidence at this
time that the cancer has spread. I will be entering a clinical
trial next week to test sunitinib and sorafenib to hopefully
prevent a recurrence.

I came across this forum and just wanted to drop in and say
hi to everyone and thank you to this forum and all who participate.
It helps.

Re: kidney cancer

Sorry to hear about your situation. I read today about a new drug that just received FDA approval for renal cell carcinoma. The drug is called Torisel.
I have an Uncle in Canada with renal cell carcinoma. I am hoping this drug can help him.
