Kidney Cancer

When kidney cancer is identified and treated before spreading to lymph nodes, five-year survival rates are as high as 92%. We’ll be with you every step of the way.

Let’s walk this road together.

Kidney Cancer Fundamentals

Nothing can change your life like a cancer diagnosis, but there is some good news about kidney cancer.

Risk Factors

We’re not sure what causes kidney cancer. We know that you’re more likely to develop it if you have a family history of it, are African American, male or have had certain hereditary syndromes, and according to the American Cancer Society, there are a number of other risk factors that you’d be smart to avoid:

  • Smoking
  • Asbestos exposure
  • Cadmium exposure
  • Obesity
  • Advanced kidney disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Diuretics (water pills)
