Newly Diagnosed?

Welcome to Kidney Cancer Canada – Cancer du rein Canada — a patient-led organization with the mission to support all Canadians touched by kidney cancer.


We know when you hear “you have kidney cancer”, it can overwhelm you so, we are glad you found us and we are honoured to help you.
If you need us at any time, please reach out by phone, email or social media – any way you feel comfortable.


Remember, you are not alone.


Let’s take your first steps togethera few tips we know will help you

  • First, we recommend you know whether your kidney cancer is localized, or metastatic. If you don’t know, ask your doctor. Knowing your histology helps you find the right information.
  • If you have localized disease, we suggest you focus on information in that area.
  • Pace yourself. Take in as much or as little information as you feel comfortable to digest.
  • Ask a family member or friend for help. A second set of eyes and ears really helps navigate the many decisions you make.
