Data support first-line treatment with combined regimens that include an immunotherapeutic agent
Partial nephrectomy (PN) and cryoablation for T1a renal cell carcinoma tumors smaller than 2 cm offer similar cancer-specific and overall survival, but PN may offer superior survival outcomes in patients with larger tumors.
Among Swedish men, overweight or obesity during adolescence tied to higher risk for renal cell carcinoma
Robotic partial nephrectomy offers similar oncologic outcomes to robotic radical nephrectomy, but is associated with better preservation of renal function.
Overweight and obesity, compared with normal weight, in adolescence are associated with a 1.8- and 2.9-fold increased risk of renal cell carcinoma later in life, respectively, a study found.
Higher circulating concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D are associated with a lower risk of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), new data suggest. The data are from a study in which investigators in China compared 135 newly diagnosed cases of RCC with 135 controls matched by age and sex. Average plasma levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25 (OH) D]…
Kidney cancer and some other cancers tied to obesity are increasing the most rapidly among individuals younger than 50.
First-line treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma with tyrosine kinase inhibitors is associated with worse progression-free and overall survival in patients with non-clear-cell vs clear-cell histology.
Evidence suggests that starting on systemic drug therapy immediately may be the best approach for some patients with metastatic RCC.
Routine partial nephrectomy yielded longest life expectancy in patients with normal renal function.
