renal cancer, management, multimodal treatment


Introduction. Renal cancer is a frequent tumor of the urinary system and occupies about 3% of the structure of oncological morbidity in adults. It has a significant worldwide morbidity - of about 200 thousand and a mortality of about 100 thousand annually. These trends are also characteristic of European and Romanian countries. The aim of the paper – is to carry out an analysis of the treatment management, including multimodality, of kidney cancer. Material and methods. To highlight the methods of multimodal treatment of kidney cancer. Bibliographic sources and clinical cases from the European and Eurasian literature, North America, Romania, the Republic of Moldova, and 256 records of kidney cancer patients undergoing specialized oncological treatments were analyzed. Conclusions. The multimodal treatment of renal cancer includes – surgical method, oncological method – chemotherapy, radiotherapy, biological and genomic treatment – personalized in perspective.
