My brother has stage 4 liver cancer. It started in his kidney and the kidney was removed. He is having shortness of breath. Is that from the cancer? What should we watch for?
Shortness of breath from kidney cancer needs to get evaluated right away. There are many causes, but they are usually all serious. Your brother needs to be seen by his cancer doctor soon.
