Cancer Home > Treatment for Kidney Cancer

If you have been diagnosed with kidney cancer, you may be searching for information on your treatment options. A number of options are available, including:
 
  • Surgery
  • Arterial embolization
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Biological therapy.
  •  
Which options will yield the best results? The answer will vary based on the stage of your kidney cancer, as well as your age, your general health, and other factors. Together with your healthcare providers, you can develop a treatment plan that is appropriate for your medical needs. The decision will ideally involve you, your family, and your healthcare team. Getting a second opinion may also be something you want to consider -- in fact, some insurance companies even require one.
