Kidney Cancer at a Glance
- Roughly 58,000 new cases of kidney cancer occur each year.
- Most people with this cancer are older. The average age of diagnosis is 64.
- Kidney cancer is among the 10 most common cancers in both men and women.
- For reasons that are not yet clear, the rate of people developing kidney cancer has been rising slowly since the 1970s. At least part of this is probably due to the development of newer imaging tests such as CT scans, which have picked up some cancers that may never have been found otherwise.
- The death rates for these cancers have gone down slightly since the late 1990s.
