Kidney cancer starts in the kidneys. Renal cell carcinoma is the most common type of kidney cancer in adults. Almost 90% of cancerous tumors fall into the category of renal cell carcinoma. Wilms’ tumor is the most common kidney cancer in children. The cause of kidney cancer is still unknown. It is related to mutations of kidney cells. The earlier you find tumors, the more likely you are to treat them.
