Active Surveillance of the Small Renal Mass: An Integrated Biomarker Trial
Diseases and Conditions Researched
What is the purpose of this trial?
Active surveillance in kidney cancer involves closely observing the tumor with periodic imaging studies rather than immediately proceeding to an invasive treatment. This does not mean that the tumor is ignored or that future treatment is not necessary, rather it means the tumor does not require treatment at this time. On active surveillance, a tumor is closely monitored without treatment, however if the tumor changes and reaches a predefined threshold that your physician no longer considers safe, your physician will strongly encourage treatment.

How will my information be used?
When you express interest in a specific study, the information from your profile will be sent to the doctor conducting that study. If you're eligible to participate, you may be contacted by a nurse or study coordinator.
If you select a health category rather than a specific study, doctors who have active studies in that area may contact you to ask if you would like to participate.
In both cases, you will be contacted by the preferred method (email or phone) that you specified in your profile.
