Hi @oldirish1, Surgery is the primary treatment for kidney cancer (renal cancer) even for advanced or recurrent kidney cancer.

You can read about @trishanna's experience with surgery here:
– Kidney renal mass biopsy https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/kidney-renal-mass-biopsy/

I'd also like to bring @foxylady and @darlia into this conversation, who may have more to share about surgical management of kidney cancer.

Everyone continues to talk about Kidney cancer. What about the lung surgery I just went through. I sort of thought that surgery is the only answer but my oncologist said that they have new drugs they might try?

My best friend has soft tissue renal cancer.Her tumour is 17 cm.Surgery is out of the question.She is taking a drug called Votrient.Has just started.So it truly depends on other factors,Colleen.
