Overview
Kidney cancer is uncommon in people younger than 45, with most cases found between ages 55 and 84. It is almost twice as common in men as women.
Deciding on Treatment
Your treatment will depend on the type of kidney cancer you have and the size and location of the tumor. Talk with your doctor about the treatment options and the best plan for you.
