Answer

Patients at high risk should be made aware of the early signs and symptoms of the disease, and the need for early intervention for possible cure should be stressed. For patients with early-stage disease who have undergone treatment, education about possible relapse should be provided.

For patient education information, see the Cancer and Tumors Center, as well as Blood in the Urine and Renal Cell Cancer.
