It’s not unusual to develop growths in the kidneys. Cysts are the most common type of abnormal growth found in the kidneys, and are rarely malignant. However, solid tumors can be a cause for concern. Kidney cancer is most often diagnosed during a routine visit with your doctor, often related to other health concerns. Your doctor may run a series of tests, such as an ultrasound, MRI, CT scan, and/or biopsy to diagnose kidney cancer, and then refer you to the team at Pikes Peak Urology for further recommendations regarding treatment.
