Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common kidney cancer in American adults and is responsible for approximately 80%-85% of primary renal neoplasms. The incidence of RCC varies in different parts of the world, with the highest incidence in North America. Men are more likely to be affected than women. Although multiple risk factors for RCC have been identified — both hereditary and nonhereditary — patients often present with advanced disease. Clinicians should be aware of these risk factors and lifestyle modifications to facilitate earlier diagnoses, more targeted treatment options, and improved survival outcomes.
