If you have signs or symptoms such as blood in the urine (haematuria), pain in the side or back of your abdomen, fever, a swelling in the area over a kidney or anaemia, you should arrange to see your GP to arrange further investigation. Please bear in mind that many of the symptoms of kidney cancer can mimic those of common, benign conditions, but haematuria should always raise suspicions until a diagnosis is confirmed.
If you have been diagnosed with kidney cancer and have questions or concerns about your diagnosis and treatment you should talk to your specialist nurse.
