Renal Cancer

Renal cancer is a disease of one or both of the kidneys in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tubules of the organ.  Smoking and the misuse of certain drugs can increase the risk of developing renal cancer.  Renal cancer may not present early symptoms but as the tumor grows, blood in the urine, fatigue, a lump in the abdomen and other symptoms may arise. Renal cancer, if caught in the early stage can be treated with surgery, chemotherapy or radiation.
