Improving the Diagnosis and Management of Renal Masses and Localized Renal Cancer

improving-the-diagnosis-and-management-of-renal-masses-and-localized-renal-cancerHiten D. Patel, MD, MPH, assistant professor of Urology at Northwestern Medicine, discusses promising novel diagnostic approaches for small renal masses and treatment options for localized renal masses suspicious for cancer. These approaches and treatments include active surveillance, thermal ablation, radical or partial nephrectomy, and tumor enucleation.

“If biopsy is not going to change our ultimate management decision, why would we use it? What we want is a diagnostic approach that adds something to the decision-making process and something that can increase our certainty in making a benign tumor diagnosis,” says Dr. Patel. “Some of my recent research efforts focus on how to use novel imaging or unique aspects for our traditional imaging to augment biopsy so, maybe together, we can better identify these benign tumors.”
