what to do
Recently had CT of abdomen with and without contrast.  Results are: 1.  "11mm exophytic solid-appearing nodule involving the mid pole region of the left kidney.  This is suspicious for possible renal cell carcinoma.  This does not appear  to represent a cyst or complex cyst."  2.  "Small exophytic subcentimeter sized simple cyst noted within the lower pole region of the right kidney."
Questions:  What is the danger of removing the entire nodule from left kidney if it is found to be malignant?  What is the danger of removing the nodule from the left kidney if it turns out not to be malignant?  Would you remove the entire left kidney and then check the nodule for malignancy?  If the entire left kidney is removed, what would happen if the cyst in the right kidney became malignant?  Are kidney cancers generally fast growing or not?  Are kidney cancers tough to destroy with chemotherapy, radiation, etc.?
