Kidney Cancer Follow-Up

From Kidney Cancer Resource

All the details on what kind of postoperative follow-up you should expect. Much of this will depend on your particular Grading and Staging, so each case is different. The hope is that this information will enable you to ask the right questions.

Post Operative

Depending on the type of Surgery you've undergone will depend on you post operative follow-up.

After an Nephrectomy you would expect to see your surgeon about 6 weeks after the operation. The surgeon will be checking to see that your scar(s) have healed correctly and that you are generally progressing well.

If your Pathology report does show Kidney Cancer then you should also expect to be sent to see an Oncologist a few weeks after your operation.

On Going

Again this will depend on the Grade and Stage of your Kidney Cancer and can range from every 3 months to every 2 years.

It's different for everyone but can involve any one or more of these
