kidney cancer life expectancy calculator

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on February 24, 2012


How long have I got, doc? Is the sort of natural question anyone with cancer is likely to ask when they’re talking about their diagnosis. Unfortunately being give a life expectancy can be a) depressing¬† b) self-fulfilling c) life affirming. We simply don’t know how we are going to react. Some people given three months die within days, others – like my wife – die on precise schedule and some gird their loins and go out and set out to disprove it – many succeeding gloriously. So this info is dangerous. But almost everyone hates uncertainty and imprecision. That’s the problem. Anyway, here is a kidney cancer life expectancy calculator that was posted on my Facebook Cancer Recovery group. Use it as you wish

Note: The Cancer Survivor’s Bible (2012) is now available – see www.fightingcancer.com

“This book gives hope. …I wish I had read this book before I was diagnosed. My doctors and the cancer charities didn’t tell me any of this.”
