The application of molecular and cytogenetic techniques to the study of renal neoplasia has resulted in improved understanding of the biological mechanisms responsible for tumor development and progression. It has also revealed that a number of different and specific genetic events are responsible for tumorigenesis in the various categories and subcategories of renal tumors. The ultimate goal of future research on the molecular pathology of renal neoplasms is a complete understanding of the genetics of these tumors, which will in turn aid in making the correct diagnosis, accurately assessing prognosis, and selecting appropriate and targeted therapeutic options.
