Abstract

Recent evidence from series of small renal mass biopsy samples and methodologically robust meta-analyses provides improved guidance on cost-benefit trade-offs for diagnosis and management of this disease. Renal mass biopsy sampling should be reserved for situations in which it will affect management decisions - which it will not do for all patients.Refers to Richard, P. O. et al. Safety, reliability and accuracy of small renal tumor biopsies: results of a multi-institution registry. BJU Int. http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/bju.13630 (2016)
