See your doctor: Kidney cancer is a potentially fatal illness that needs to be treated by trained specialists. They will "stage" the cancer before recommending appropriate treatment. There are no effective home treatments.

No approved home tx: Kidney cancer is primarily treated with surgery if the cancer is confined to the kidney. Depending on the size/location of the tumor, partial removal (called partial nephrectomy) of just the tumor portion of the kidney is recommended. The majority is treated minimally invasive techniques including laparoscopic/robotic-assisted surgery. Cancer spread from kidney may be treated with chemotherapy.
