Patient discussion about kidney tumor

Q. A tumor was discovered in my kidney how should I prepare myself to the future events?

A. sorry to hear...there are all sorts of tumors in kidneys but generally i recommend first of all talking to your family and explain the situation. but only after you understand what it is and what that means. you will need a lot of support and you don't want to leave your loved ones in the darkness about it. believe me that is the basic in preparing yourself to any tumor therapy.
good luck!!
you'll be fine i'm sure!!

More research is needed to see how early in the disease process levels of AQP1 or ADFP proteins rise and whether the concentration of these proteins in the urine correspond to the size of a kidney tumor. If the research continues to demonstrate that AQP1 and ADFP urine levels are good markers of kidney cancer, it may someday be possible to do routine screening in a doctor's office, using a noninvasive urine test to determine whether patients have the disease.
