15. They do not use a iodine derivative with MRI contrast.

CT scans use an iodine derivative. MRIs use gadolinium, a completely different agent. I've been prepping people for their radiologic studies for five years. I've seen several severe reactions to CT contrast, one death, but only one reaction to gadolinium and it was a mild case hives treated with an oral antihistamine.

Most early kidney cancer is found incidentally from other studies because usually, by the time kidney cancer is symptomatic, it may be too late for a cure. You were lucky! Early kidney cancer can sometimes be cured with surgery only.
