It is possible. If it was appropriate medical protocol that after your kidney was removed and confirmed to be cancerous that the doc should have ordered either radiation or chemotherapy, then you might have a case here. The best thing to do is get your medical records from when the kidney was diagnosed through the present (it might take some leg work getting them all together -- doctors, specialists, hospitals -- you will need all of the records) and then take the records to a lawyer in your area who specializes in medical malpractice. The med mal lawyers analyze the medical records and determine whether or not there were mistakes made and will let you know straight up if you have a case. Med mal lawyers will usually look at your records for free -- so if you run into a lawyer who wants to charge you for that, then try another med mal lawyer.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
