I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer in April, had a thyroidectomy without radioactive iodine treatment because my cancer was so small. Then in June, out of the blue I had blood in my urine and severe pain on my left side. A CT scan showed a 2 cm mass on my left kidney. And later an MRI confirmed cancer. I was diagnosed with non-aggressive renal cancer and had a nephrectomy on July 1. My urologist and endocrinologist do not think that the cancers are related. But it makes me wonder. My urologist said that usually only 1 percent of people have pain and blood with a tumor that small and that kidney cancer is found a lot by accident or when the tumor is in stage 3 to 4..
