AbstractObjectivesTo estimate an optimal follow-up (FU) interval for von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) patients with renal masses (RMs) by determining tumour growth rates from growth curves.MethodsThirty lesions (47.6 %) were classified as solid tumours (STs) and 33 (52.4 %) as complex cysts (CCs). Variations in lesion volume over time were analyzed. For 53 lesions, we calculated the growth rate during the period when the volume of the lesion changed most rapidly, and called this the fast growth rate… Expand
