In 2009, Cesar Fuentes was first diagnosed with kidney cancer (renal cell carcinoma, RCC). He had the tumour removed with surgery, but in 2022, his cancer returned and he was referred to Dr Thomas Hutson at the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. Here, new treatment options were used to treat Cesar’s cancer.

During an Around the Practice® programme, Dr Hutson spoke with Cesar about his diagnosis, his treatment, and any side effects he experienced during treatment. Additionally, Cesar provided some advice for patients and clinicians for how to best approach this disease.
