Answer

It is recommended that patients avoid causative factors such as smoking, obesity, occupational exposures, and other factors, as described in Etiology.

Careful surveillance of patients with end-stage renal disease or von Hippel-Lindau disease, those who have undergone renal transplantation, and other high-risk groups by ultrasonography and computed tomography scanning is recommended.
