I am a 57 year old woman in excellent health, approx. 5.2" weighing 110 lbs. Six weeks ago I was rushed to the emergency room with severe pain in my left side. A Cat scan revealed my left kidney had a tumor that ruptured. it was also described as renal cell carcinoma papillary.
Evidently this spontaneous rupture is not comon and therefore various opinions for any followup treatment exists due to the lack of experience with this carcer problem. I am looking for advice from anyone who has or knows of anyone with a similar experience that might help determine a course of action.
