Desperate to hear from others who experienced dizziness, nausea and vomiting as early symptoms of kidney cancer . The urologist has said this is very unusual and he is not expecting removal of the cancer to solve these debilitating symptoms whuch my husband has experienced for the past month , episodes lasting a few hours every few days. This is what brought him to hospital - they tested him too to toe and found a benign brain tumour (has to be removed but it isn’t associated with his symptoms and they are not overly concerned about it ), he needed a pacemaker which was inserted and then found the cancer - 6mm mass - removing kidney tomorrow. They say no evidence of spread. He has a neurology team, urology team, GI team and cardiac team - has had every blood test, scan etc known to man and they are still scratching their heads over these episodes. I just want to hear someone had these kinds of symptoms associated with their cancer - it would be so good to know that - urologist said maybe once a year he might see something like my husbands presentation and he’s not confident at all that removal will resolve it . Oh
Oh my bad that should read 6cm. Just had a hell of a day . He was scheduled for surgery today after being stuck in hospital with these symptoms for a month and the hospital staff forgot to stop giving him blood thinners so had to cancel it . We are shattered
On my god I’m so on the same page !! I am a researcher by trade so I know how to find information . And same as you have learnt you have to keep informed and constantly advocate for what you need . I have insisted on an ENT consult and they have finally organised that .
