What is Kidney Cancer?
Kidney cancer is a type of cancer that originates in the kidney, a bean-shaped organ that eliminates waste from the body through urine and helps control blood pressure. The condition results from the growth of abnormal cells in the kidney tissue, causing a tumour to develop. In Singapore, kidney cancer is one of the top 10 most common cancers. In particular, men between the ages of 60 and 70 are at a higher risk of developing kidney cancer.
