Subject:adenocarcinoma of the kidney

I have been recently diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the kidney.  This is a very rare type of kidney cancer.  Adenocarcinoma is usually found in the colon.  But my colon was clean.  The kidney is the primary site.  Has anyone heard of this type of cancer and what is out there for treatment  Thank you

I have recently been diagonsed with an adenocarcinoma of the left ureter.  I have two lymph nodes involved.  This is extremely rare, and I am seeing a Urologist on the 30th who did his fellowship at MDAnderson.  Anybody got any news, advise, etc.

Hello jrtrask1950-

You seem to be asking for personal advice as well as technical information.  There are several good resources for this. 

Anderson Network's telephone support line matches patients/caregivers and survivors with similar diagnoses: 800-345-6324 or www.mdanderson.org/andersonnetwork

CanCare of Houston matches volunteers with patients and caregivers as well: 713-461-0028 or www.cancare.org

Finally, MDAnderson.org has a section devoted to kidney cancer, including new treatments: http://www.mdanderson.org/patient-and-cancer-information/cancer-information/cancer-types/kidney-cancer/index.html

Take care and let us know how you are doing!
