IN THIS ARTICLE
After treatment is completed, a urologist/oncologist will perform regular evaluations, typically every 4 or 6 months for as long as 5 years. These visits include history and physical examination along with imaging studies, such as chest X-rays and abdominal CT scans, to monitor the condition and lab tests to make sure the kidneys and other organs are working properly.
