An analysis of data involving more than 7,000 early-stage kidney cancer patients found that those who went through partial nephrectomy had higher survival rates than those who underwent radical nephrectomy. Among patients who had their entire kidney removed, 42% died after an average follow-up of five years compared with 25% of patients who only had the tumor taken out. The findings appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
