We will monitor your condition closely for the growth of non-cancerous and cancerous kidney tumors, which typically grow slowly with Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome.

Overview

Cancers related to Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome often are manageable if diagnosed early. However, we may remove malignant kidney tumors when they are large enough to be extracted by noninvasive methods. Our goal is to preserve as much of your kidneys as possible after any required surgeries. After treatment, a healthy lifestyle will be important, because a poor diet can damage any remaining kidney tissue.
