Watch and Wait

In some cases, no treatment is recommended. Still, you would have regular follow-up visits and care for symptoms. This treatment is chosen when:

  • The kidney tumor may not be cancer
  • The patient cannot tolerate treatment
  • The patient is likely to pass away from other causes
  • The patient does not want treatment
