13 year old with renal cell carcinoma

Posted By sue on May 07, 1999 at 19:36:55
My 13 year old had her left kidey removed and was diagnosed with papillary renal cell carcinoma. Her checkups have been clear for  a year. They have now gone to every 4 months . Her oncologist was very negative when she was diagnosed and I refuse to see the man.Is there a chance that her cancer might never come back?
I worry that she isn't getting all the tests that she needs at her checkups, but I'm not sure what they should be besides ultra sounds, blood work and cat scans.
Any suggetions would be helpful .
