What is renal cell adenocarcinoma it was on my daughters death cerificate after she died in a car wreck along with multiple blunt force injuries i under stand that part

Here's what happened: It's fairly common for an adult who died unexpectedly in an accident to have something serious that was not known in life. I list all cancers that i find in accident victims on the death certificate, simply so the family will know and for the sake of public health records.

The reality is that if you do not smoke, there is nothing further to do except live a healthy lifestyle. I wouldn't worry but if you are concerned, you could ask your physician if they feel that genetic testing should be done or if regular screening spiral ct scans should be done. ...Read more

Describing the Tumor: So it sounds like the oncologist has really just given you a lot of descriptors to help describe the tumor. The idea is that if we know this information we can select therapies that are more likely to work. For example, whether a patient has a k-ras mutation helps predict whether a tumor may be resistant to a certain drug. ...Read more
