Learn About Chromophobe Renal Cell Carcinoma

What is the definition of Chromophobe Renal Cell Carcinoma?
Chromophobe renal cell carcinoma is a rare subtype of the most common form of kidney cancer called renal cell carcinoma (RCC). This type of cancer forms in the cells lining the small tubules in the kidney. These tubules help filter waste from the blood, making urine. Chromophobe RCC accounts for about 5% of all RCC cases, and it is frequently diagnosed between ages 40 and 50. It is typically diagnosed in stage I or stage II, and has an overall better prognosis than other types of RCC. Treatment generally involves surgery.
