Hi I had a partial nephrectomy on rt kidney in sep 2010 and just had updated ct. They found a 12mm lesion in adrenal gland I am worried sick as this is on rt side also. The dr did not remove adrenal glands or lymph nodes at surgery in sep. Does anyone know what chances are that this could be cancer.... This lesion/lump was obviously not there in sep 2010. Please help as i am not able to see surgeon for a few days and have had trouble sleeping.

Anna, I had my right kidney removed in September of 2009. I December of 2010 they found a 5cm mass on my left adrenal gland and enlarged (probably cancerous) media stynum (middle of the chest) lymph glands. They told me I get to live with it. I am taking Nexavar to stop the growth of the cancer. So far so good. There has been shrinkage in the tumors.

There are side effects, my hands and feet are sore, my hair started thinning quite a bit. I like my new bald look though.

As long as the cancer does not grow a person can live with cancer. I don't mind the side effects since the drug seems to be working.

I hope all goes well with you.
