2012 was diagnosed w/ kidney cancer, had surgery removed 18% of left kidney.Having reoccuring UTI sence im scared could cancer be coming back?

2012 was diagnosed w/ kidney cancer, had surgery removed 18% of left kidney.Having reoccuring UTI sence im scared could cancer be coming back?

Not likely: Recurrent UTI is not necessarily due to your kidney cancer. In fact the two conditions are not related. Since your tumor was probebly quite small when it was removed(in 2012) it is quite unlikely to come back so soon. You should go see your gynecologist or family doctor and ask for their advice as to how to stop the recurring uti...I think they will find you a solution. ...Read more
