Renal Carcinoma

Carcinoma of Kidney


  • We present the case of a 56 year-old male with a pulsating lesion in the temporal region of the left orbit as presenting sign of a renal cell carcinoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Ultrasonography showed the presence of a multinodular goiter, all nodules being "cold" at scintiscan. Total thyroidectomy was performed; histology of all nodules revealed a metastatic thyroid cancer from renal cell carcinoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Thyroid Nodule
  • History of patients with thyroid nodules should include inquiring about extra-thyroid malignancies, especially renal cell carcinoma, that may have been diagnosed even many years earlier.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of a 73-year-old man with a painful neck mass, dyspnoea, stridor and dysphonia that was evaluated in emergency. A right radical nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma was performed 8 years previously.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Heart Disease
  • INTRODUCTION: Recent advances in surgical and anesthesiology techniques allow simultaneous thoracic and abdominal operations to be performed for severe heart disease and benignant or malignant abdominal diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Neck Mass
  • CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of a 73-year-old man with a painful neck mass, dyspnoea, stridor and dysphonia that was evaluated in emergency. A right radical nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma was performed 8 years previously.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We report on a sciatica leading to the discovery of a tumour of the right thigh which proved to be an endoneural metastasis of the sciatic nerve from a renal carcinoma surgically removed 4 years before.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Limb Weakness
  • At 5 months, the patient was pain-free and his right limb weakness had completely resolved. A tumoral recurrence could be observed on the control MRI 5 months after surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • During the staging workup, she was found to have a synchronous early-stage clear cell renal carcinoma. The patient underwent an esophagogastrectomy and radical nephrectomy and remains disease-free at a 12-month follow-up visit.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] aminotransferase [AST] and alanine aminotransferase [ALT]) Serum calcium Imaging studies used to evaluate and stage renal masses may include the following: Excretory urography CT scanning PET scanning Ultrasonography Arteriography Venography MRI See Workup[emedicine.medscape.com]


  • In contrast, combined treatment with osthole and TRAIL did not induce apoptosis in normal human skin fibroblast cells.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • We believe that studies involving more patients are needed for the long-term prognosis assessment in these patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prognosis can be variable depending both on histological subtype and stage.[radiopaedia.org]


  • Etiology A specific factor in the etiology of RCC is not known at the moment, although a number of dietary, environmental factors, hormonal, celllular and genetic factors associated with increased risk.[atlasgeneticsoncology.org]

  • Epidemiology They are the most common renal carcinoma in adults. They rarely present before the age of 40, and the average age of onset is 65-75 Twice as common in men as women.[almostadoctor.co.uk]

  • Epidemiology Renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) of all subtypes and variations are dispersed nationwide. The incidence and number of kidney cancer cases is not geographically specific.[pharmacytimes.com]

  • The pathophysiology of RCC is still far from understood, and there is a clear need to identify key mechanisms of tumour progression and metastasis to open up novel therapeutic avenues targeting different aspects of RCC biology.[u1029.u-bordeaux.fr]
  • Targeted Adjuvant Therapy The treatment of metastatic RCC has been revolutionized by an improved understanding of the molecular pathophysiology of RCC.[hematologyandoncology.net]
  • Pathophysiology The tissue of origin for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the proximal renal tubular epithelium.[emedicine.medscape.com]


  • Cordycepin downregulated GADD45B and c-FLIPL, but upregulated MKK7 and phospho-JNK, by preventing nuclear mobilization of NF-κB.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • They can slow bone damage, prevent fractures, and lower the amount of calcium in your blood. Denosumab (Xgeva). Like bisphosphonates, it helps prevent bone breakdown and fractures.[webmd.com]
