Kidney Cancer

Our kidney cancer nomogram is a prediction tool designed to help patients and their physicians calculate the likely outcome of their surgical treatment for newly diagnosed renal cell carcinoma (a type of kidney cancer). It is appropriate for patients who have undergone either radical nephrectomy (complete surgical removal of a kidney) or partial nephrectomy (surgical removal of the cancerous tissue in a kidney, not the healthy tissue).

All results should be discussed with a physician and understood in the context of each patient’s program of care. Results from the kidney cancer nomogram are based on data from patients treated at MSK, a large research institution with surgeons who perform a high volume of kidney cancer procedures.
