What is the age of most with Kidney cancer.

I've been real sick I have FMS and stomach issue. Last year (it's been a year)I went to the ER with pain in my rt. lower abdomen which I thought was a cyst on my ovary. They did a CT and US There was cyst on my left ovary, not rt. which was odd, nothing else. I was told I had a kidney infection from a urine they did, and was treated for 3 days with bactrim DS. Okay this whole year I have had GI problems then a couple months ago I saw pink on tissue it caught my eye. Now I am peeing blood. I was seeing little black things in my urine also, someone said they were stones. I do not know. I am truely scared. I've been attributing all my back pain to a bad gallbladder and now I am wonder if it wasn't my kidney.

How long can this thing be growing. Some of you said you had your masses for years????? Is it a slow growing cancer???? What the age group? Risk factors?

Thanks

Re: What is the age of most with Kidney cancer.

Hi Dee46,

Males are 1.5 times more likely to get RCC. Typically this strikes between 50-70 yrs. There are some genetic factors that may give way to RCC as well. Typically RCC is a slow growing cancer, I seen info suggesting 0.5 cm per year. You can go for many years without any symptoms.

My tumor was 3.9 cm, and I had no symptoms. I have seen several posts in which the blood in urine was thought to be bladder infection, later discocered to be RCC, so be sure to get this checked out as soon as possible through your GP and or urologist.

Keep us posted,

Brent
