The authors have collected and processed data of 307 patients at Urological Department Semmelweis University, who were treated for renal tumour from June 1997 to December 2002.


During this process on the basis of their work, they formed their opinion of the main steps of diagnostical, surgical and conservative therapeutical procedure with patients suffering from renal cell cancer. They established the fact that the data is parallel with retraceable international literature, therefore this work can be the starting-point of long term prospective studies. They call attention to the fact that 70% of the tumours were recognized without any symptoms, during examination indicated for other reasons, due to the widely spreading of ultrasound, computed tomography and other imaging techniques.


The tumours are recognized and removed in earlier stages and it is to be hoped that it prolongs their life expectancy, and makes the quality of life of our patients much better.
