Abstract

The pathologic features of RCC are the most valuable factors in predicting the prognosis and for planning surveillance and treatment protocols. Urologists and pathologists should optimize approaches in handling tumor-containing kidney specimens to allow for the best evaluation and reporting of such specimens. A pathologic report of a tumor-containing kidney specimen should include all established or potential prognostic factors, especially tumor types, size, grade, information for pathologic staging, and status of the surgical margin.
