    I think the answer is 1.CT scan guided percutaneous biopsy

    This is a Clear cell type, renal cell carcinoma.

    Risk factors:
    1. adult polycystic disease,
    2. acquired kidney cystic disease,
    3. smoking (RR = 2.0),
    4. obesity in women,
    5. hypertension,
    6. von Hippel Lindau disease (develops in 50%);
    7. hereditary renal cell carcinoma without VHL,
    8. tuberous sclerosis
    Prevention is better than cure
