Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common kind of kidney cancer found in adults.
The kidneys are organs in your body that help get rid of waste while also regulating fluid balance. There are tiny tubes in the kidneys called tubules.
These help to filter the blood, aid in excreting waste, and help make urine.
RCC occurs when cancer cells start growing uncontrollably in the lining of the tubules of the kidney.
RCC is a fast-growing cancer and often spreads to the lungs and surrounding organs.
