We have boosted our capacity to provide telephone and telemedicine visits. We may be calling you to determine if a telephone or telemedicine visit would be best for you.

We ask that if you know you have had close contact with a COVID-19 infected person to not come to the office. Rather, please call to discuss your situation and our staff will help determine the best thing to do for you.

Advanced Treatment for Kidney Cancer

Your kidneys are two fist-sized organs located on the left and right sides of your spine and behind your abdominal organs. The most common type of kidney cancer is known as renal cell carcinoma. Adults and children can have kidney cancer. The most common symptoms are:

  • Blood in urine
  • Unrelenting back pain below the ribs
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Intermittent fever
  • Unexplained fatigue


Having one or more of those common symptoms does not necessarily mean you have kidney cancer. They may symptoms of some other problem.

Better technology detects more kidney cancers

Thanks to modern imaging technology, more kidney cancers are being discovered earlier, including many that are purely by accident. The latest CT (computed tomography) scans are incredibly detailed and they are exposing more kidney cancers.

If you have any of the symptoms listed above – or any other persistent symptoms that concern you – talk to a specialist at Orange County Urology Associates. We’ll help you determine the best possible treatment for you.


Our kidney cancer patients come to us from Irvine, Mission Viejo, Lake Forest, Huntington Beach and Laguna Hills in Orange County, CA.
