Cancer that forms in tissues of the kidneys.
Kidney cancer includes renal cell carcinoma (cancer that forms in the lining of very small tubes in the kidney that filter the blood and remove waste products) and renal pelvis carcinoma (cancer that forms in the center of the kidney where urine collects). It also includes Wilms tumor, which is a type of kidney cancer that usually develops in children under the age of 5.
A sign is something that can be observed and recognized by a doctor or healthcare professional (for example, a rash). A symptom is something that only the person experiencing it can feel and know (for example, pain or tiredness).
Kidney cancer may not cause any signs or symptoms in its early stages because the kidneys have few nerves, so tumours can grow without causing any pain or discomfort. The location of the kidneys deep inside the body means that tumours have space to grow very large before they are found. Symptoms appear once the tumour grows into surrounding tissues and organs.
Most people with kidney cancer have advanced disease at the time of diagnosis. Up to one-third of people without any signs or symptoms will have their kidney cancer found during an ultrasound or x-ray for reasons other than kidney cancer.
