Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

survivalrate of stage 4 kidney cancer reciveing dialysis?

Improving

Kidney_cancer
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.

If treated early, Stage I kidney cancer has a 90-95% 10 year survival. Thus, there is a 5-10% chance it may recur

Dr. Simon Kimm answered:

My mother is in stage 4 kidney cancer. She is also on dialysis. What is her life expectancy?

No clear prediction.

Open-uri20120916-587-ew91cq
Each individual case is unique & predictions are very difficult--but from what you describe, the life expectancy is, unfortunately, not long. Large series show that median survival for patients with stage IV disease is 16 to 20 months in contemporary reports, and the five-year survival rate is less than 10 percent for patients with distant metastases. Kidney failure may worsen the prognosis.

What is the survival rate of a person diagnosed with stage 4 kidney cancer?

D/w your oncologist

Cancer
In general, the median overall survival of stage 4 kidney cancer will be around 16 to 20 months- with a 5 year overall survival of less than 10%. If eligible for IL-2, in selected cases, ( will depend on the location of metastases, the type of cancer cells, how much metastases, other prognostic factors- overall condition etc) - IL-2, can give dramatic and durable responses. d/w your MD

Dr. Liawaty Ho answered:

Can you help? Is 4th stage kidney disease and kidney cancer the same thing?

Different

Cancer
there are 5 stages of chronic kidney disease-which is based on the kidney function rate. stage 1 is the mildest one and stage 5 as the worst one when you are getting hemodialysis, this is not staging of cancer.

I have stage four kidney cancer witch spread to my groin terasich spine limp notes i also had a kidney removed how much longer i have to live?

See answer

Renal_cell_cancer
I am sorry to hear of your diagnosis. However, there have never been more options for many patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC). The most common type (clear cell) may respond well to newer treatments which have been shown to improve survival in some patients. I recommend that you seek an opinion at a cancer center (see www.nccn.org) to see if you may qualify for a clinical trial. Good luck!

As with any cancer, early detection and treatment result in higher cure rate. For kidney cancer, the five year survival for stage I is 81%, for stage II is 74%, for stage III is 53%, and for stage IV is 8%.
