About Renal Cell Carcinoma
Renal cell carcinoma is the most common type of kidney cancer. It is also known as RCC, renal cell carcinoma, or renal cell adenocarcinoma. It accounts for more than 9 out of 10 cases of kidney cancer. Like all cancers, kidney cancer begins small and grows larger over time. It usually grows as a single mass or tumor within the kidney. But a kidney can have more than one tumor. Sometimes tumors are found in both kidneys at the same time. Kidney tumors are often found on CT scans or ultrasounds being done for concerns other than kidney cancer. The cancer might be found only after it has become very large. Most of the time it is found before it has spread to other organs. This is good because like most cancers, kidney cancer can be hard to treat after it has spread.
