Renal cell carcinoma is the commonest malignancy of the kidney in adults. Although there are several histological sub-types, the majority are clear-cell - approaching nearly 80%.
Today, due to advances in radiological examination methods, are becoming more frequent incidental findings of asymptomatic carcinomas. In 5% of cases, the tumour is discovered by metastases (usually bone, lung or subcutaneous).
