Thank You! Very helpful advice! Wishing the Best for you. I am thinking twice before jumping to get the first treatment that a Doctor recommends! I had a benign tumor removed that was diagnosed as Renal Carcinoma.  Well, I have scars and accepted the risk to find it was a compex benign tumor.  I had to have it removed to participate in a clinica trial study.  Now after reading about the side effects of the Study.  I am not sure I will participate. Knowledge is power!! Thank You

Thank You for your advice . I had a choice to make also. i chose the Hormornal Plus Radiation Treatment. The procedure involved five weeks external radiation  plus Fudicial Seed Implants. The process only took a total of six months . I am now cancer free . I have returned back to work. There is a little discomfort  with  the urination process ,but not at all what I expected ( very minimal) discomfort from the Hormone Therapy. I am proud and very thankful from my heart for CTCA.
