Renal cancer represents 2% to 3% of all cancers, and its incidence is rising. The increased use of ultrasonography and cross-sectional imaging has resulted in the clinical dilemma of incidentally detected small renal masses (SRMs). SRMs represent a heterogeneous group of tumors that span the full spectrum of metastatic potential, including benign, indolent, and more aggressive tumors. Currently, no composite model or biomarker exists that accurately predicts the diagnosis of kidney cancer before treatment selection, and the use of renal mass biopsy remains controversial...

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a common cancer that is increasing in incidence because of the increased prevalence of risk factors, including tobacco use, hypertension, and obesity, and the improved detection of these tumors due to increased use of imaging. Localized renal cancer now accounts for more than 60%-70% of new RCC cases. Renal masses suggestive of cancer include enhancing solid renal lesions and Bosniak III and IV complex cystic lesions. Most of these tumors are detected incidentally, and many are slow growing with little propensity to metastasize...

OBJECTIVE: Previous studies considered the role of occupational causes in kidney cancer but were limited by small sample sizes and imprecise exposure assessment. This study examined the relationship between occupational exposure to asbestos and the risk of kidney cancer across a range of jobs in a large, population-based case-control study in Canada. METHODS: Data were from the case-control component of the National Enhanced Cancer Surveillance System, a study conducted between 1994 and 1997 in eight Canadian provinces...

Thyroid malignancies are one of the fastest growing cancers in the world, with the majority being papillary thyroid cancer. Follicular variant of papillary thyroid cancer accounts for about 10%-20% of papillary thyroid carcinomas. The usual sites for metastases of these tumours are lungs and bones with renal metastases being extremely rare. We describe a case of a 64-year-old woman who presented with abdominal pain. On subsequent imaging, she was found to have a colonic mass with metastatic lesions in the lungs and tumour involving left kidney...

CONTEXT: Renal tumor biopsy (RTB), as distinct from the more common renal biopsy for medical renal disease, is an option for patients with renal masses. It is mainly used for small renal masses (SRM) but it may also be indicated for larger masses and even in the presence of metastatic disease. Its main indication in SRM is to avoid intervention for benign kidney tumors but increasingly enables more personalized treatment for kidney cancer patients. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this paper is to provide a comprehensive review of the most recent literature available for RTB including the indications, the technique and also the possible complications...

BACKGROUND: While the probability of malignant versus benign histology based on renal tumor size has been described, this alone does not sufficiently inform decision-making in the modern era since indolent malignant tumors can be managed with active surveillance. OBJECTIVE: To characterize the probability of aggressive versus indolent histology based on radiographic tumor size. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: We evaluated patients who underwent radical or partial nephrectomy at Mayo Clinic for a pT1-2, pNx/0, M0 solid renal tumor between 1990 and 2010...

OBJECTIVE: Obesity and physical inactivity are associated with increased rates of chronic diseases and conditions. However, the 'fit but fat' theory posits that cardiopulmonary fitness (or physical activity) can mitigate risks to health associated with obesity. The purpose of this study was to compare chronic diseases and conditions of highly active/obese women with inactive/normal weight women.

BACKGROUND: There is a critical need for improved prognostic discrimination in patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) given the increasing awareness that some patients may be managed with active surveillance, while others with higher-risk disease might benefit from adjuvant therapy following surgery. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether a multigene proliferation signature predicts long-term oncologic outcomes in surgically resected RCC. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: The cell cycle proliferation (CCP) score was determined after radical nephrectomy for localized clear cell, papillary, or chromophobe RCC in 565 patients...

Despite the rise of small renal tumour (SRMs) diagnosis and related surgeries, death rate of kidney cancer is increasing, suggesting a non-optimal management of SRMs. Active Surveillance (AS) for kidney cancer was introduced to face this paradox. However, incertitude remains on whether and when AS can replace surgery in selected patients. We performed a literature search, reviewed and discussed the evidence in favour of AS or surgery for SRMs. Histopathology and natural history of SRMs, including the percentage of benign tumours amongst SRMs, tumour growth rate, life expectancy of SRMs patients being generally older, and current results of AS series seem to support its use in selected groups...

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) exhibits a diverse and heterogeneous disease spectrum, but insight into its molecular biology has provided an improved understanding of potential risk factors, oncologic behavior, and imaging features. Computed tomography (CT) and MR imaging may allow the identification and preoperative subtyping of RCC and assessment of a response to various therapies. Active surveillance is a viable management option in some patients and has provided further insight into the natural history of RCC, including the favorable prognosis of cystic neoplasms...

Rates of kidney cancer have been increasing, with small incidental tumors experiencing the fastest growth rates. Much of the increase could be due to increased use of CT scans, MRIs, and ultrasounds for unrelated conditions. Many tumors might never have been detected or become symptomatic in the past. This suggests that many patients might benefit from less aggressive therapy, such as active surveillance by which tumors are surgically removed only if they become sufficiently large. However, it has been difficult for clinicians to identify subgroups of patients for whom treatment might be especially beneficial or harmful...

CONTEXT: A marked increase in incidentally detected small renal masses (SRMs) has occurred over the past decade. Active surveillance (AS) has emerged as an initial management option for these patients. OBJECTIVE: (1) To determine selection criteria, assess appropriate imaging modalities and surveillance frequencies, and define triggers for delayed intervention (DI) for patients on AS. (2) To describe oncologic outcomes for patients on AS protocols. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: The PubMed database was queried for English language articles using the keywords "surveillance" and "renal mass" or "renal cell carcinoma" or "kidney cancer...

In the management of small renal masses (SRMs), treatment options include partial nephrectomy (PN), radical nephrectomy (RN), ablation, renal biopsy, and active surveillance. Large series retrospective and meta-analyses demonstrate PN may confer greater preservation of renal function, overall survival, and equivalent cancer control when compared with RN. As newer therapies emerge, we should critically evaluate the risks and benefits associated with the surgical management of SRMs among patients with competing comorbidities, complex tumors, and high-risk disease...

Siri Drangsholt, William C Huang
There has been a rising incidence of small renal masses and concomitant downward stage migration. This has led to an evolution in the management of kidney cancer from radical nephrectomy to nephron-sparing treatment options including observation. The adoption of partial nephrectomy continues to increase but is still incomplete leading to significant disparities in the delivery of care throughout the country. Surgical excision remains the treatment of choice for small kidney cancers; however, ablative therapies and active surveillance are emerging as reasonable options for select patients...
