This year, 60,000 Americans will be diagnosed with kidney cancer. Many of these cancers will be found incidentally – almost by accident. Many patients are completely unprepared and don’t know what questions to ask or what kind of follow-up they should receive after their diagnosis. While multiple guidelines exist, there isn’t a single uniform or standard plan for patients. In an effort to improve that – we’re doing something that no one else has done. We’re asking patients to share their experiences and to tell us what they want and what the health care system can do better! If you’ve been diagnosed with RCC, please take a moment to fill out our survey and share with others! By doing so, you’ll help magnify the voice of all patients.
