Kidney Cancer Procedures

Items Found: 4

Description: Kidney cancer also called renal cancer is a disease in which kidney cells become suspecious (cancerous) and grow out of control, forming a tumor. Almost all kidney cancers first appear in the lining of minor tubes in the kidney. This type of kidney cancer is called renal cell carcinoma. The advantage is that most of kidney cancers are found before they invade to surrounding organs. And cancers found early are easier to treat successfully. However, these tumors can develop to be quite large before they are detected.

To be sure the tumor is destroyed without too much damage to surrounding tissues, the doctor investigates the images of the tumor during the procedure or measures tissue temperature.

Active Surveillance for Kidney Cancer

One option for some patients with small kidney tumors (which is about 1½ inches), may be to give no treatment at first rather investigate the tumor carefully to see if it develops. The tumor is elimianted, if it grows rapidly or gets larger than 4 cm. This approach is most often used in elderly or frail patients as it avoids the risks of treatment. Often, a biopsy is done before deciding to watch the tumor to see if the growth is really cancer. Some of these minor cancer tissues turn out to not be cancers at all. Watching them closely for
