Let's Find a cure for kidney cancer

Kidney cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths around the world. Kidney cancer which is also known as renal cancer is the most common cause of cancer deaths. Kidney cancers mainly originate in two parts of the kidney, the renal tubule and the renal pelvis. Older age, obesity, smoking, and high blood pressure increases the risk of developing kidney cancer. The symptoms of the kidney cancer do not generally appear in the early stages but later a person may experience blood in the urine and a lump or mass in the back, near the kidneys.
