Maggie, apparently most kidney cancers are found when testing for something else. So I guess "thank you breast cancer"? That just seems such a bizarre thing to think!

2Fun, my kidney tumor was 3.2 cm on the upper, outer quadrant of the kidney.  After the CT scan results came in, I was immediately referred to a kidney surgeon.  He felt that there was no need for further testing, as the CT showed quite clearly that the tumor was malignant.  He showed us the CT pictures and pointed out the tumor, but I really can't recall what it looked like.

Alice, agree wholeheartedly!

Hi, y'all! I had a sarcoma that reoccurred in spite of surgery with good margins from my 20s through my 40s. An amputation finally cured me. Now diagnosed with BC. My oncologist did full genetic testing, but there are no abnormalities. Luck of the draw, I guess...

2FUN, Yeah, that's what they said to me, too! I'm sorry you've had to deal with this, but will admit it's comforting to know other folks out there have experienced multiple cancers, too. I hope you're doing well now!

yeah Fairchild, I returned to work 6 weeks after my last surgery, worked the school year, and spent this last summer exercising to get my stench back. I can tell a big difference just a few days back to work. The exercise and finding an AI that I can tolerate has helped too. I hope u r on the mend also

hi everyone , interesting how many of us have had kidney cancers found after bc was diagnosed ... I had a robotic partial nephrectomy last year for a clear cell kidney cancer recovery was not too bad .

This years challenge? Awaiting pathology result on an "interesting looking " colon polyp found at my latest colonoscopy (2 years since last colonoscopy)

Had genetic testing last year through Color .... Nothing detected... Hopefully if they can all be persuaded to share OUR results then all the daughters and wives will benefit from any patterns emerging.

Yoxter123, I had 7 polyps removed last year, all were pre cancers and 3 years prior I had 0 polyps! I was on a 10 year recall but was having changes in my bowels so GI doctor did another colonoscopy. What if I had waited until they grew and became cancerous?? I hate to imagine.

I am convinced that once your body knows how to grow cancer cells, it finds other places to grow it!

I have monoclonal gammopathy (MGUS) which is the precursor to multiple myeloma!! What next??!!

Talbrig13, I hope that nerve damage to your vocal chords is temporary. And I hope the rest of your treatments are successful and not too hard to endure.

My update is that I had my left kidney removed on the 18th. The cancer was around 6 cm, so a partial was too difficult, which had been explained at my first appointment. Kidney cancers are really sneaky; apparently this sucker had been growing for years. Recovery is going okay, I just look very stabbed from several midriff incisions and I'm still sore (and occasionally VERY sore), but it's getting better gradually. Wish I had bought some overalls before the surgery since most pants (I don't do skirts/dresses) rub and press in the wrong place. I had lost a lot of weight recently, so those larger clothes are handy, but something like overalls would have been the best for going out in public.

Yes I was just diagnosed with melanoma on my face.   Had surgery two weeks ago and stiches out last week.   Now I find out that surgeon has to go back in for more to get better margins.    I have a huge scar on my face right by my cheek bone shaped like a crescent moon.   Now it will be larger.   I hate cancer.   I had mastectomy in February 2018 and immediate reconstruction.

I had breast cancer (IDC) 9 years ago and thyroid cancer ( Hurthle cell) 3 years ago. I had a bilateral mastectomy, but no chemo or radiation with breast cancer. I had a total thyroidectomy with radiactive iodine treatment with the thyroid cancer.

Also, I have type 2 diabetes. I have more issues with my health because of the diabetes. I know that I don't eat right, but I have serious impulse eating issues going on with sweets. I wish that had a rehab for that
