Your Treatment Begins Here

Surgery is the primary treatment, particularly for patients with localized disease. When possible, treatment with preservation of the functioning portion of the kidney is performed. 

Multiple options for kidney-sparing surgery exist, including minimally invasive, as well as open, partial nephrectomy. Depending on the size and location of the tumor, percutaneous ablation is another possibility.

For larger tumors, removal of the entire kidney may be necessary. For advanced stage cancer, systemic drugs are used to treat cancer that has spread outside of the kidney or to prevent it from spreading.
