High grade ureteral cancer

Had kidney and ureter removed last year followed by chemo. Recent scan showed ureteral cancer so starting immunotherapy.  Can’t find anyone else with the same diagnosis.  Would  like to know if treatment is effective in prolonging life, 

  • Hi  and I see this is your first post so welcome to the Online Community although I am so sorry to hear about your diagnosis.

    A cancer journey can be so stressful and challenging in many ways but I do hope you find the community a safe place to get support and ask your questions.

    If you put ureteral cancer I to the search Mag tool near the top then select ‘Anywhere’ you will see some older posts. As always you can hit reply and see if the members are still active around the site.

    The Macmillan Support Line is open 8am-8pm (timings may differ across services) 7 days a week on 0808 808 00 00 or via Webchat and Email too. This service provides cancer information, practical information, emotional support, benefits/financial guidance or just a listening ear.

    You may also find our Cancer Nurse Team in our Ask an Expert section helpful but do allow a few working days for a reply.

    We also have our Telephone Buddy Service where you can be matched with someone who understands what you're going through, and they'll give you a weekly call.

    Talking to people face to face when on a cancer journey (patient or family) can be very helpful but during these strange times it’s not that available but do check to see if any Local Macmillan Support in your area has opened up. Do also check out for a local Maggie's Centre in your area as these folks are amazing.

    Always around if you need further help in navigating the community.

    All the very best ((hugs))
