Hi David,

I just came across your blog and this particular posting struck a chord with me. I have bilateral clear cell RCC, and I think the paranoia is normal. Everytime I have a strange abdominal pain, I think 'crap, my tumor's growing' (turns out to be gas) and any nausea I wonder 'is this the beginning of the end.' Turns out to be a virus. It always makes me mad because no one should have to live like that. I've asked several other kidney cancer patients the same question, and they tell me that it never passes, but gets a little better with time. Good luck!
