What is adjuvant therapy?

Adjuvant therapy is an additional treatment taken after your primary treatment, such as surgery. The goal of adjuvant therapy is to help reduce the risk of recurrence. As you read on, you’ll find out more about SUTENT, the only FDA-approved adjuvant therapy for adults with kidney cancer that has not spread (localized) and who are at high risk of RCC coming back after having kidney surgery.

You may be referred to an oncologist for your treatment with SUTENT.
