Chromophobe Renal Cell Carcinoma

Common Name(s)

Chromophobe Renal Cell Carcinoma

Chromophobe renal cell carcinoma is a subtype of the most common form of kidney cancer called renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Chromophobe renal cell carcinoma makes up about 4-6% of RCC, and it is frequently diagnosed between ages 50 and 60. It is thought to have a more favorable prognosis than clear cell RCC, which is the main subtype of RCC.
