This study is looking at blood samples to find out more about the genetic causes of kidney cancer. There are many risk factors associated with developing renal cell carcinoma (RCC). This is the most common form of kidney cancer. There are some faulty genes and inherited conditions that increase risk. This study is looking at people who may have an inherited genetic fault or medical condition that increases their risk of developing RCC. The aim of the study is to find out more about the genetic causes of RCC, and more about how gene faults may increase risk.

DIAMOND: A study looking at biomarkers in prostate, kidney, bladder and testicular cancer Some people have biomarkers that make them more vulnerable to develop certain types of cancer. In this study, doctors want to look for these biomarkers. They hope this information will help them: •learn more about the causes of cancer •develop better tests and treatments Everyone taking part gives blood, urine, poo and breath samples. Doctors may also ask for a tissue sample if you had, or are going to have, surgery. The main aim of this study is to look for biomarkers that might play a role in prostate, kidney, bladder and testicular cancer. Researchers are also looking for men who are going to have a biopsy to find out whether they have prostate cancer. This is part of a sub study called PRIM. Everyone taking part in the PRIM sub study has a blood test called...

Doctors can use surgery to remove: prostate cancer bladder cancer penile cancer kidney cancer Doctors think that one way to monitor patients more closely when they have surgery would be to use biomarkers. A biomarker is a substance in the body that can be measured. In this study, the researchers will look at people’s blood and urine samples before and after surgery to measure certain biomarkers. The aims of this study are to Find out if surgery of the prostate, bladder, penis and kidney causes changes to biomarkers in the body See if there is a link between changes in these biomarkers and complications after surgery See if there is a link between changes in these biomarkers and the cancer coming back You will not directly benefit from taking part in this study. If the researchers find that biomarkers are useful, it could help to improve the care and treatment...
