Answer

For a pathologic T1a renal mass, National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) lists the following as treatment options [20] :

  • Partial nephrectomy (preferred)
  • Radical nephrectomy (if partial not feasible or central location)
  • Active surveillance in selected patients
  • Ablative techniques in selected patients

For pT1b disease, the NCCN recommends either partial or radical nephrectomy. [20]
