Hi everyone. My Dad has been unwell since November. He had a scan then which showed a 7cm lesion in his right kidney. He was referred to a Melbourne hospital for investigation (3 hr drive) and finally got booked in at the start of Feb and had a biopsy and renal study. He waited and waited and after several phone calls his results were sent to his GP on Friday. They confirmed a Clear cell Renal Carcinoma. There was no other info from the hospital about what next and his GP said it needs to come out and left it at that. Here we are bordering on 4 months this thing has been in him (that we know of), his iron is low, short of breath and very sick. I will be calling the hospital tomorrow but wanted some info from anyone that has it of what should happen next. Thanks
