Our Approach to Kidney Cancer Care

According to the National Cancer Institute, over 73,000 cases of kidney cancer were diagnosed in 2020 . The most common kidney cancers in adults are renal cell carcinoma and renal pelvis carcinoma.

The Mayo Clinic reports that kidney cancer is on the rise, but this is at least partly due to the cancer being discovered incidentally thanks to increased usage of imaging techniques, like CT scans. As a result, the cancer is often discovered by “accident” when tests are called up for another reason. This is good news, since the cancer is often treatable in an early stage.

Early-stage kidney cancer doesn’t usually produce any symptoms. Symptoms of later-stage kidney cancer, such as blood in the urine and flank pain, can mimic many other conditions. Whenever you notice a change with your body, it’s important to speak to your doctor.

Our board-certified urologists can diagnose kidney cancer, provide a thorough explanation of your treatment options, and be with you every step of the way. You are not alone. Let us help.

"I came to Dr. Liu after I was diagnosed with a malignant cyst in the veins and arteries of my right kidney. I was highly recommended to Dr Liu and Greater Boston Urology by my oncologist. Dr. Liu wasted no time and removed the kidney before the cancer spread. His follow up was great through issues with the remaining kidney. He has a great way about him and his bedside manor is impeccable. His staff are kind and professional and made this process comfortable and tolerable. Thanks to their support and competence I am cancer free, extremely healthy and back in the gym. I owe my life to Dr. Liu and his wonderful staff and highly recommend them."

"Staff is friendly and courteous. Appointments are fulfilled promptly. Dr. Gillard spends sufficient time, and answers all patient questions and concerns in a professional and knowledgeable manner."

"Dr. Fitzgerald was with me every step of the way from the office visits prior to surgery to the day of the procedure and then after. Very caring and I would recommend him to anyone."

"Dr. Curran is a Godsend and personal hero of mine. He helped me with a private medical issue. He is very professional and skilled at his practice. As fine a doctor as you will find in the United States and abroad."
