Cancers of the kidney account for approximately 1.5 % of all cancers and cancer deaths (with an incidence of 5–8 per 100,000 population in the UK and commoner in males). Three main types of renal cancer are distinguished: (1) Wilms tumor, (2) renal cell carcinoma (RCC) (adenocarcinoma), and (3) medullary and transitional cell cancers of the renal pelvis.
