The two most common types of kidney cancer are renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and urothelial cell carcinoma (UCC). Young children are more likely to develop Wilms’ tumors. Most renal cancers are diagnosed before they can metastasize, leading to excellent survival rates.

The disease is usually asymptomatic, which is why it is often diagnosed accidentally. When symptoms do present, they may include abdominal lumps, blood in urine, fatigue, loss of appetite, weight loss, hemoptysis, fever and heavy sweating, as well as persistent abdominal pain.
