Lack of early signs in renal cell carcinoma

Renal cell carcinoma lacks early warning signs and makes a much generalised presentation. Hence the chances of it being misdiagnosed are higher. It has to be differentiated from conditions like renal abscess, metastatic disease, infected or hemorrhagic cyst and lymphoma. The prognosis of patients with RCC depends on its stage at diagnosis. The prognosis is worst for patients with metastatic disease at presentation and best for patients with small masses confined to the kidney.
