Kidney cancer treatment programs depend on the cancer’s progression, aggression, and size. The main treatments are:
- Surgical removal of affected tissue or the entire kidney – This is the primary approach for 56% of patients
- Biological therapies to stimulate the body’s mechanisms to combat the cancer
- Embolisation, which is a procedure that involves cutting off blood supply to malignant cells.
- Radiofrequency or cryotherapy ablation to destroy the cancer through heating or freezing
