Kidney cancer is the most common cancer in people aged over 40 years. It is similar to bladder cancer and is often treated in the same way as bladder cancer. The treatment of kidney and bladder cancers depends on the cancer stage, kidney function status and patient’s condition. Thesecancers can be cured if detected at an early stage when the tumours are localised in the kidney.
