Kidney cancer

Other Names:
Malignant neoplasm of the kidney
Wilms' tumour
Adult kidney cancer has no known cause and may be discovered incidentally through examinations for other conditions. It is often widespread when initially found. Recent scientific understanding points to a genetic cause, more so than other cancers.
Childhood kidney cancer, know as Wilm's tumour, occurs primarily in children younger than seven. At least 30 percent of Wilm's tumour cases are caused by inherited factors.
