Researchers develop a model to predict which patients are more likely to harbor brain metastases at cancer diagnosis.
Bone surgery should be considered in patients with solitary bone metastasis and no concomitant visceral metastases, according to investigators.
In a pilot study, metabolomic analyses of serum and urine showed a high level of predictive ability.

The most common types of benign pathology were oncocytoma, angiomyolipoma, and complex cysts.
In a study, only 3 of 108 patients experienced complications, all of which were minor and required no hospitalization or further intervention.
