Abstract:
The detection of incidental renal tumours has dramatically increased over the last twenty years as a result of widespread ultrasound and CT scanning for various other conditions. Renal cancer is now an incidental diagnosis in over 50% of cases 1 . Survival rates have dramatically improved as a result of early surgical intervention (radical or partial nephrectomy) 2 . However, despite advances in radiology, benign renal lesions may be indeterminate from renal cancer. We report our incidence of patients undergoing nephrectomy for clinically diagnosed renal cancer but with subsequent benign pathology.
