Renal Cell Carcinoma

Teresa has been diagnosed with Locally Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma of Sarcomatoid variant [Stage 3 Grade 4] and have undergone Radical Nephrectomy [Rt.] .

It's Non-metastatic at the moment, but suggested to have her PET Scan done after about 1 1/2 month, followed by Immunotherapy of SUNITINIB Course.

Is there any other treatment we should consier?

Any further treatment would depend upon the final results of her surgery, and whether or not any cancer was thought to be left behind by the surgeon.

I wish Teresa the best in her tratment.
