Kidney Cancer - Symptoms and Evaluation

In the past, kidney cancers were diagnosed only after they had grown significantly in size, leading to symptoms of flank pain, blood in the urine, or palpable mass in the abdomen.

Other symptoms include weight loss, fevers, persistent fatigue and swelling in the lower extremities.

With greater use of radiographic imaging such as ultrasound, CAT scan or MRI, most kidney cancers are now found incidentally (during evaluation of unrelated medical problems) by imaging studies.
