The five year survival for untreated renal cell cancer is approximately 2%. This increases to 30 – 47% following simple nephrectomy whereas the overall five year survival following radical (perifascial) nephrectomy is 57 – 80%. Ten year survivals for renal cell cancer overall are 17 – 27% for simple nephrectomy and 40 – 66% following radical nephrectomy (1–5).
