The following educational materials have been developed based on the general experiences of many kidney cancer patients.
Your particular experience may be different, so always refer to your doctor or health care team with any personal concerns. If you have any questions about what kidney cancer treatment services are covered by your health insurance, please contact your health care provider or health insurance provider.
According to the American Cancer Society, in 2011, approximately 60,920 people in the United States will be diagnosed with kidney cancer. The good news is that more than 200,000 kidney cancer survivors are living in the United States right now. Recent advances in diagnosis, surgical procedures, and treatment options will allow even more patients to live with the disease, continuing to maintain their normal activities and lifestyles.
