Familial Non-VHL Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

What are the screening options for familial non-VHL CCRCC?

There are no specific screening guidelines for families suspected of having familial non-VHL CCRCC. Individuals in these families are encouraged to talk with their doctor about screening options for kidney cancer, includingultrasound (which uses sound waves to create a picture of the internal organs), computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan (which creates a three-dimensional picture of the inside of the body with an x-ray machine. A computer then combines these images into a detailed, cross-sectional view that shows any abnormalities or tumors), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (which uses magnetic fields, not x-rays, to produce detailed images of the body).

Screening options may change over time as new technologies are developed and more is learned about non-VHL CCRCC. It is important to talk with your doctor about appropriate screening tests.
