We’re here to support and help you
This section of the website describes the patient kidney cancer support services available for kidney cancer patients and their families.
We offer free a telephone Careline on 0800 002 9002, for all details please click here, and we offer the UK’s only dedicated kidney cancer counselling service free of charge. Please click here for more information.
You can share your thoughts with others and get information, help and support through our online closed Facebook patient and carer forum .
Alternatively, our Living With Kidney Cancer days, held throughout the UK, provide patients and their families with much needed information about treatments, diet, patient support and how to deal with the side-effects of drugs. Patient days are also a good place to meet and chat to other patients.
Click on the Kidney Cancer tab to access a wealth of information about kidney cancer, including our three informative Understanding Kidney Cancer Booklets and kidney cancer fact sheets, written specifically for kidney cancer patients and their families. You will also find the latest National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance documents, the Map of Medicine Health Guides for the management of kidney cancer and the European guidelines for the treatment of kidney cancer, to download from this page.
We have written a very comprehensive kidney cancer glossary of common words and terms that you might come across, in addition to a list of frequently asked questions with answers. There is also a list of links to websites with further useful information about kidney cancer and the practicalities of living with the disease.
