Abstract

Downward stage migration of renal cancer has been described in the last 2 decades, paralleling the use of cross-sectional imaging. We used the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database to examine whether stage migration is still ongoing. The increase of overall and localized renal cancer incidence has halted. The role of imaging as a pseudo-screening tool has reached its potential.
