Dr. Yekutiel Sandman, Urologist with Baptist Health South Florida, explains if a tumor is not cancerous, doctors can do a biopsy. He points out it is important to individualize care for the patient. Dr. Constantino Pena, Interventional Radiologist with Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, highlights doctors have a more personalized approach to the evaluation of patients with a renal mass. He explains if the renal mass is under two centimeters, the chance of being benign is greater than one that is larger.
