Re: kidney cancer stages IV ?

Yes, please do! I know a lot of insurance companies & Doctors think it's not necessary to test the lower half of your body... but it is. My Dad's Urologist had requested his Pet Scan be done above the pelvic.. Had my father not injured his leg and end up in the ER with severe pain, we would have never known the renal cancer spread to that bone. There is also someone else on the board who mentioned her father having renal cancer mets to the femur bone as well. Better to be safe than sorry! Thank you Good luck and I wish you the best of health from here on out !! xo
