Kidney cancer, or cancer of the kidney, is any type of cancer that has arisen from the kidney.
The most common types of kidney cancer include renal cell carcinoma and urothelial cell carcinoma of the renal pelvis. Renal cell carcinoma accounts for approximately 90% of all kidney cancers. Urothelial cell carcinoma is a type of cancer that occurs in the urinary system, specifically the kidney, urinary bladder, ureter & urethra.
Adults aged between 50 and 80 years are more likely to develop kidney cancer compared to other people. This type of cancer affects men more than women.
The incidence of kidney cancer in the developed world has been steadily increasing over the last three decades. Some experts believe there is a close link between this increase and a parallel rise in rates of adult obesity.
Kidney cancer is the 8th commonest cancer in men and the 13th commonest cancer in women. It accounts for 8% of all male cancers and 5% of all female cancers.
