Dear Dtbomar
Hello I am Dr Ravinder Sharma. At first thought with a history of renal cancer and hearing loss I would consider metastasis (spread) of renal cancer with deposits into the brain causing deafness and vertigo. I would advise you for an MRI. Please consult your oncologist and a opinion of a ENT surgeon and neurologist to solve this problem. Do let me know if you need more information on this
with regards
