Kidney and Renal Pelvis Cancer
Kidney cancer is a cancer that begins in the kidneys. The most common type of kidney cancer is renal cell carcinoma. Renal Pelvis cancer is cancer of the small cavity into which urine (formed by the kidneys) is sent before it travels through the ureters to the bladder. It is also known as the renal basin.
After a kidney or renal pelvis cancer diagnosis, doctors perform exams and tests to determine the stage of the cancer. Those stages range from zero (carcinoma in situ, which means cancer has not spread to surrounding tissue within the organ) to four (cancer has spread to another organ). Stages one through three indicate the extent of the disease, how big the tumor is, and/or how cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes.
Our kidney and renal pelvis measures are:
- Stage 1 Kidney and Renal Pelvis Cancer - Five Year Survival
- Stage 4 Kidney and Renal Pelvis Cancer - Five Year Survival
