Kidney Cancer Surgery - Diagnosis

Further tests to confirm the presence and extent of kidney cancer may include :

  • Ultrasound or Computed Tomography (CT) scan. Detailed images are taken of the kidney to show the size, characteristics and extent of spread of the kidney tumour.
  • Kidney biopsy. Samples of kidney tumour tissue are removed and examined under the microscope to confi rm presence of cancer.
  • Cystoscopy. A small tube, a cystoscope, is passed through the opening of the urethra in the penis. It contains a lens and light system that helps the doctor see the inside of the urethra, prostate and the bladder to identify any additional tumours in those who have blood in the urine and a kidney tumour.
