Hey, I am a 25 y/o that was diagnosed with a multifocal renal kidney cancer about 2 weeks ago., one of the youngest my specialist has seen. I wanted to know if there was anyone else around my age that, has been diagnosed with this, what can you tell me? So lost on where to find things that relate to me as its not common for younger people to get this, and we don’t know a lot about it.
I am trying to prep myself while I can to ensure I am equipped at much as possible to deal with removal of the kidney and the recovery process. I will seeing a dietician once I have a date booked, so I can work out what I can an cant do food and supplement wise. Co-ordinate things with work.
Is there anything else I should know, or know where to guide me to?
Hi @kite and welcome to the community!
Sorry to hear of your diagnosis, have they said what the way forward is as yet?
I am going to send you an email in a few minutes with a few options, but you might like to check our booklet on kidney cancer and check out our podcasts here, in particular coping with a diagnosis and making treatment decisions.
