Kidney cancer (renal cell carcinoma - hypernephroma)

Tumours of the kidney are mostly malignant. Typical benign kidney tumours consists of fatty tissue and blood vessel growths (angiomyolipoma). Renal cysts (vesicles or bullae filled with tissue fluid) are often found but they cannot really be classified tumours.

Malignant tumours are mostly renal cell carcinoma, renal pelvis carcinoma or metastases of other rare tumours. Even rarer are the very aggressive kidney sarcoma. Initially, kidney tumours are asymptomatic and become symptomatic from a certain size on. Visible blood in the urine can be a sign of a malignant kidney tumour.
