Recent cancer diagnosis

Hello - I’m new to this group. On 27/11/23, I was diagnosed with Kidney/Renal Cancer, as a CT Scan carried out to check for Bowel Cancer, had shown a lesion on my left kidney. Further CT Scans of the Renal area, showed that the lesion was in fact a small tumour! The tumour is thought to be relatively slow developing - as I’ve already had Systolic Heart Failure for some time, the condition was considered to be inoperable. Further scans (over time), will show how fast the tumour is growing & it is anticipated that the cancer symptoms will be treated if & when they occur. 

  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll both find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    I'm sorry to read that you've recently been diagnosed with kidney cancer and I know what a shock to the system being told you have cancer can be.

    I'm sure you'll find the other members of this group willing to answer any questions you might have and also share their experiences with you.

    It would be great if you could put something about your diagnosis and any treatment into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
