Hi,
Dont lose heart when you hear that you are suffering from cancer. Because one of the prime requirements for the successful treatment is the patient's optimistic mental approach along with medical/surgical treatment.

Once you have been diagnosed to have renal cancer, your doctor would have done tests
1.to stage the cancer: whether it is confined to kidney or has spread beyond that.
2. your general health : whether you will be able to withstand the curative treatments.

The prognosis ( survival and quality of life) depends on the stage of the disease and general health status to withstand the treatment. I will be able to give you a better idea if you can give the details of the reports of your tests.

Hi,

Sorry to know about this. It is i guess anywhere between three months to one year depending on the stage of the cancer. My maternal aunty had skin cancer, advanced stage, when it was detected. The doctor said she might live for three to six months, but she died after three and half months after it was detected.

Renal cancer ho, it is very dangerous. The people who has this will not survive for long time. You nned take the treatmetn. Also it depends on the extent of the cacner. Is it spread to other parts then it is very difficult to treat
