The renal cell carcinoma is no more considered as a death sentence. Surgery and radiotherapy can relieve patients from the disabling symptoms and complications of metastatic renal tumour. In fact, new drugs with fewer side effects, that can stop the disease from progressing can elongate patients' lives.
We can consider cancer of the kidney as one of the most widespread malignant tumor. Adults between the ages of 60 and 70 are generally more concerned with this type of cancer. The prevalence (number of people affected by a given disease) is low among individuals under the age of 50.
If the diagnosis and therapy of renal cancer is done early, it can be easily cured. However, the cancer can spread beyond the renal system to other part of the body. In this case, curing the tumour becomes harder.
