Long-term surveillance of small renal masses is safe

In a recent study published in Journal of Urology and involving over 100 mostly older patients, almost all of the patients with small kidney tumours never developed advanced cancer or died of the disease during more than 4 years of follow-up in active surveillance.

More than half of the patients remained alive without metastatic disease at the last follow-up. Two of 103 patients developed metastatic disease, one of whom died of kidney cancer.
