The 2017 ASCO guidelines present six well-reasoned recommendations for the management of small renal masses. We expand these recommendations to contextualize the use of renal tumour biopsy, clarify when active surveillance could be more inclusive, and highlight nuances in surgical decision making for patients with anatomically complex tumours and a normal contralateral kidney.
