Treatments for kidney cancer
Surgery is the main treatment for kidney cancer. It is used to remove part or all of the kidney. This surgery is called a nephrectomy. The type of nephrectomy you have will depend on the size of the tumour, location in the kidney and stage of the cancer. Doctors will use a partial nephrectomy whenever possible, to leave part of the kidney in place. In some cases, they need to use a radical nephrectomy, which removes the whole kidney, to try to completely remove a kidney tumour.
