Women with diabetes have an 11 percent higher chance of developing kidney cancer.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication in cancer patients and occurs in up to 30% of patients during their disease course. Multiple myeloma, leukemia/lymphoma, renal cell carcinoma, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation are commonly associated with the development of AKI.

This study shows the risk of RCC after kidney transplantation.
Blood in urine is a key symptom of kidney cancer.
While studying two rare inherited cancer syndromes, Yale Cancer Center (YCC) scientists have found the cancers are driven by a breakdown in how cells repair their DNA.
Scientists at Stanford used a magnetic wire to capture free-floating tumor cells in the blood, a technique that soon could be used in humans to yield an earlier cancer diagnosis.
Approval was based on data from the Phase III CheckMate -214 clinical trial, in which the Opdivo (nivolumab) + Yervoy (ipilimumab) combination showed “a significant and unprecedented increase in overall survival (OS) in this patient population compared to a current standard of care, sunitinib,” according to BMS.
It may be time to adopt a broader approach to tumor and matched normal sequencing in patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC), according to a large new study.
