Kidney SPOREs

According to the American Cancer Society statistical data, there will be an estimated 73,750 new cases of kidney and renal pelvis cancers and about 14,830 deaths in 2020. The average annual incidence rate in 2012-2016 was 16.6, and the average annual death rate in 2013-2017 was 3.7 per 100,000. Kidney cancer can affect both adults and children. Metastatic kidney cancer remains largely incurable in adults. Kidney cancer in children, known as Wilms tumor, is curable in most patients, but treatment often leaves life-long sequelae. SPORE programs in kidney cancer span a wide array of projects. The SPOREs in kidney cancer foster collaborations among experts in renal cancer generating new resources and research opportunities for scientific community.
