The theoretical advantages are reduction of a large, potentially immunosuppressive tumor burden, and prevention of complications related to the primary tumor during systemic therapy. On rare occasions, a highly symptomatic tumor is removed when conservative measures at palliation are unsuccessful. Surgical mortality has been reported for 2–11% for patients with large primary renal tumors and metastatic disease. The possibility that the patient may not recover sufficiently well after preparatory radical nephrectomy to receive systemic immunotherapy must be considered.

Two patients developed cutaneous metastases that were detected during the physical examination. 4 yr. Levy and colleagues from the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center tracked the pattern of recurrence in 286 patients with P1-3N0 or Nx RCC, who had surgery between 1985 and 1995. Perhaps reflecting the stage migration that has occurred in RCC over the last 10 yr, 59 of 92 (62%) patients diagnosed with metastatic disease were asymptomatic, including 32 detected by routine chest X-ray and 12 detected by routine blood work.
