In brief: A workup

Your physician will need to get tissue to see what these masses actually are.
If they are recurrent kidney cancer, there is no predicting either its natural course or its response to treatment. Be strong and good luck.

In brief: Kidney cancer mets

If these lumps and tumors are due to spread of the kidney cancer, then likely demise will be fairly short if untreated.
No one can say when.
