Answer

For a T1a renal mass, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) recommends partial nephrectomy, stating that radical nephrectomy should not be used when nephron-sparing procedures are possible. For T1b tumors, the NCCN guideline states that the standard of care is either radical nephrectomy or partial nephrectomy (when possible). [20]
