Transitional carcinoma Cancer is in the tissue lining of the left kidney in the lower kidney area. Recommending aggressive chemo to shrink tumor before removal of kidney. Will this medication do the same as 3-6 months of aggressive chemo to shrink the tumor before surgery? Will it shrink it enough in that amount of time to do the surgery within the six month period?
Are the side effects the same as or less than aggressive hospitalized chemo therapy? My dad is 84.
