What will my kidney cancer treatment plan include?
Each patient’s ideal course of kidney cancer treatment will depend on several factors, such as overall health, age and the specific type and stage of the cancer. At Moffitt, kidney cancer treatment may involve one or more advanced therapies or procedures, such as:
- Robotic-assisted surgery to remove a portion of the kidney, the entire kidney or surrounding lymph nodes
- Targeted radiation therapy to shrink or kill cancer cells in a specific area with high-energy X-rays
- Chemotherapy to slow the growth of cancer cells with powerful medications
- Molecularly targeted therapy to identify and attack specific cancer cells
- Immunotherapy to leverage the body’s immune system to battle cancer cells
Moffitt spearheads a robust clinical trial program and trailblazing research initiatives to facilitate breakthroughs in kidney cancer treatment. Patients who are eligible to participate in clinical trials have access to the latest developments in treatment before they are made widely available. As evidence of our commitment to improving the prognosis for kidney cancer patients, the National Cancer Institute recognizes Moffitt as a Comprehensive Cancer Center – the only such center based in Florida.
