What kind of testing do they do to determine if the mass in the kidney is benign or malignant, and what kind, prior to performing a radical procedure?
I understand that with Renal Cancer needle biopsy is not recommended. So How do they know in advance, so they don't remove a kidney if you merely have something benign?
