Detecting kidney cancer earlier

Kidney cancer, the most lethal of all urological cancers, is largely curable if detected at an early stage, but most patients have no symptoms. In a new study, Cambridge and Leeds-based researchers are assessing how feasible it is to add abdominal CT scanning for kidney cancer, the eighth commonest cancer in Yorkshire, to the ongoing Yorkshire Lung Screening Trial. Detecting abnormalities early will enable patients to receive treatment faster.
