Survivalrate of stage 4 kidney cancer reciveing dialysis?

Improving: Formerly this was zero. A decade ago it might have been 10%. With the new targeted medications for common renal cell carcinoma, it is impossible to give an accurate number since both the length and quality of survival are improving so surprisingly. Good luck, and cherish every day -- it's not the number of days in the life, but life in the days.
