In brief: Primarily imaging

Most kidney cancers are found through some type of imaging modality (e.
g. Ct scan, mri, etc), although some can be picked up through looking at the cells present in a urine sample.

In brief: X-rays

Kidney cancer, when suspected, is primarily diagnosed with imaging studies.
These tests include kidney ultrasound, ct scans, and mri. A kidney biopsy is rarely indicated as the diagnosis can usually be made with these imaging studies. Special urine may also be performed as an adjunct to x-rays for certain types of kidney cancers.
