Renal pelvis tumours are malignant tumours, which account for about 10% of all kidney tumours. They originate from the so-called urothelium, the inner lining of the renal pelvis, ureter and bladder. Signs of a renal pelvis tumour usually include blood in the urine, as well as congestion of the renal pelvis (hydronephrosis).

Because this is a systemic disease of the urothelial tract, the bladder must be monitored at regular intervals by <ahref="t3://page?uid=61">cystoscopy.
