Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
Hi there,
Humira is known to cause severe infections. Are you still on it? What is the type and stage of lymphoma. Also for kidney cancer, what was the stage and pathology report. Have you not seen oncologist for the above conditions. Kindly give more details for me to be able to comment anything definitively. For lymphoma there are various options ranging from observation to chemotherapy to transplants. For Renal carcinoma for post operative patients again one may be kept of observation alone to chemotherapy or immunotherapy options.
Take care
