Patient Guides: Taking Charge of Kidney Cancer

ACKC’s set of online pamphlets provides kidney patients and their caregivers with the information they need to take a proactive role in their health care and in their lives.

All four guides were updated in April 2016. See important new information in Guide 2, in the Medical Treatments and Promising Drugs for Kidney Cancer sections, pages 19 to 24.

  • Guide 1: Understanding My Disease is written for the newly diagnosed patient.
  • Guide 2: Managing My Cancer is about the care and treatment of kidney cancer patients
    with metastatic disease.
  • Guide 3: Caring for My Caregiver is for the people in your life who are helping you.
  • Guide 4: When Treatment Ends is designed for both patients and their loved ones.
