Kidney cancer, also called renal cancer, is among the ten most common types of cancers in both men and women. The two main types of kidney cancer are renal cell carcinoma and renal pelvis carcinoma. While no one knows exactly what causes kidney cancer, there are common risk factors, including age (the disease usually affects those 40 and older), smoking, high blood pressure, or family history. The Sentara Cancer Network offers a comprehensive approach to kidney cancer care. From diagnosis to recovery, you'll be taken care of by an expert team of physicians who specialize in urology and cancer care. You'll also have the support of patient navigators, who help guide you through the treatment process.
