While it doesn't get as much attention as more common cancers like those of the breast, skin, or prostate, kidney cancer is one of the 10 most common cancers among adults. Roughly 55,000 American men and women are diagnosed with a form of kidney cancer each year, and roughly 1 in 4 of them will die from the disease, according to the CDC. When people talk about kidney cancers, they're usually referring to a type called renal cell carcinoma, or RCC, which makes up around 85% of all kidney cancers, says Dr. Jihad Kaouk, MD, a surgeon at Cleveland Clinic and a professor of surgery at Case Western Reserve University. RCC usually shows up as a tumor in the lining of one of your kidney's tubules.
