    I have read that exposure to cadmium is a potential cause of kidney cancer.   Once cadmium is in your sytem it stays there and  there is a blood test that will identify how much has been absorbed by your body.  Having worked in a shipyard and been fully exposed to cadmium I requested the  test.  My doctor was not interested.  Has anyone ever had this test done?

    I lost my husband to kidney cancer three years ago. Two days ago I had a ultrasound that identified a solid mass, 3.8 x 2.8 cm. on my left kidney.
