Vector of Coronavirus 2019-nCoV and Virus background with disease cells.

The COVID-19 global pandemic is affecting people around the world and is of great concern to many cancer patients. In addition to information about the virus and how to protect ourselves, kidney cancer patients need information about cancer treatment, follow-up care and other cancer-specific details about managing our health during the pandemic.

While the local situation and individual risk of each cancer patient differs, there is a universal need for credible and reliable information. On this page, IKCC has curated information from trusted, evidence-based sources about COVID-19, as well as cancer-specific resources.
