Urology Services

Kidney Cancer Service

The most common symptoms of kidney cancer are blood in your urine and/or pain in your side. Some people experience loss of appetite and weight, and unexplained tiredness. 

If your GP feels that your symptoms may indicate kidney cancer, you will be referred to see one of our consultant urologists either in the Haematuria Clinic or in the main Outpatient Department at the Freeman Hospital.

We run four haematuria clinics a week at the Freeman Hospital. We also hold other local clinics at:

  • North Tyneside General Hospital
  • Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead
  • Wansbeck General Hospital
  • Hexham General Hospital

The Newcastle Haematuria Clinic is held in the Urology Investigation Suite at the Freeman Hospital. 

If you are referred to see a consultant urologist in the Freeman Hospital outpatient clinic, this is held in the main Outpatient Department at the Freeman Hospital
