Additional Details
id just like tosay to the couple of you who think this is a sick question that you have no idea why i am asking

i may not have been clear but i do have a reason to ask and just because you do know know does not mean this is a sick question


kidney failure is worse. you can't dance.

Jessica C
well i would say neither but if i had to choose i would say kidney failer because we have 2 kidneys.

well id rather have something like testicular cancer cos yh u lose a ball but u still got another and u got life. but like some cancer like stomach cancer and bowel cancer is rough! so idk its a difficult question. id rather have neither tho.

I wouldn't want to have either of them!

both are horrible

oh god, if i had to choose i guess it would have to be cancer.
but hopefully that never happens!

i think chronic kidney failure is deff worse to have

*little one*
I have a friend named rachael who has Chronic Kidney failure and threw the 2 transplants (plus the one she needs now) and the false hope she received after having her son. i really can't imagine how the few months (maybe years) of cancer could be worse than the lifetime i have seen her go threw. I would have to say the CKF.

the damned kidney dessease

I wouldn't want to have either, but there is a long list of fairly minor cancers i'd rather have than chronic kidney failure.

Cancer of course.

Roger F
I'll counter your question with another horrible pointless question: what is worse; smallpox or the plague

i think the kidney failure is worse.

they both can kill you O.O

Depends. With End Stage Renal Disease; the person can always get on dialysis and live a pretty normal life assuming they watch their diet. Cancer, on the other hand, can kill you dead.

hard to say, probably kidney failure is a lot worse depending on how bad the cancer is.

Cancer is only horrible if you poison or radiate yourself and kill the healthy organs you do have. With the right diet and prolly some drugs cancer can be completely cured. I'd take cancer over chronic kidney failure any day.

while chronic kidney failure is very bad for you...chemo is poison. depending on how far along the kidney failure is, estimated life span is 5-10 years and dialysis would probably be need. cancer could kill you next week. both have chances of being cured, if the person is a candidate for a transplant, or chemotherapy, but transplants don't last forever.

they are really hard to compare, but I think kidney failure would be worse. it usually comes with other bad stuff like whatever caused the renal failure. and with cancer there is usually a chance of getting rid of it and making a recovery.
