abstract

  • The incidence of metachronous contralateral RCC is stable on long-term follow-up, suggesting that surveillance of the contralateral kidney should remain rigorous on extended follow-up. Black men are at a significantly higher risk of developing contralateral RCC in the first 5 years of follow-up.
