Locally-advanced Kidney Cancer

Embolization

Embolization

Embolization is a treatment option for locally-advanced kidney cancer. Your doctor may recommend embolization if you are unfit for surgery and the tumour causes symptoms like bleeding or pain. This treatment is only recommended if surgery is impossible or risky. During this treatment a small catheter is inserted in the groin to reach the blood vessels around the kidney.
