Management of Small Renal Masses: American Society of Clinical Oncology Clinical Practice Guideline

This is a clinical practice guideline for the management of patients with clinically localized small renal masses (SRM). The guideline examines management options for small renal masses, which includes biopsies, active surveillance for patients with significant comorbidities and limited life expectancy, partial nephrectomy (PN), percutaneous thermal ablation, radical nephrectomy, and referral to a nephrologist. Outcomes of interest include recurrence-free survival, disease-specific survival, and overall survival.
