Kidney cancer is invariably diagnosed by radiological investigation, and treatment does not usually require biopsy. Usually a radiological diagnosis of cancer is correct, but occasionally there may be uncertainty – particularly with smaller tumours less than 2.5 cm diameter. Once a tumour reaches 2.5 to 3 cm diameter, the benefit of treatment begins to outweigh the risks of the disease and potential complications of its treatment, depending on the medical condition of the individual. Treatment will usually involve surgery, but there are some minimally invasive alternatives under investigation.
