The most common kidney cancer in children is Wilms' tumor. It occurs mostly in very young children and is usually diagnosed between the ages of three and five. Approximately 500 children are diagnosed with Wilms' every year in the US. The team in our dedicated children's cancer center is very experienced in treating this disease.
Additional, but very rare kidney tumors that we treat include: renal cell carcinoma (RCC), clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK), malignant rhabdoid tumor of the kidney (MRTK), cystic nephroma, mesoblastic nephroma and renal medullary carcinoma.
