Advances in chemo: Chromophobe renal cancer accounts 5% of renal cancers, early detection and treatment has excellent prognosis. If there is over expression of cd 117 on cell membrane , kinase inhibitors like imatinib, disratinib, and nilotinib are very effective. Best thing is to see an oncologist, for more recent medications or trails.
