Statistics on the Prevalence of Kidney Cancer

A research of kidney cancer was carried out on January 1, 2010, in the United States where approximately 5, 00,000 men and women who were alive and have or had a history of kidney cancer were present. This is a number which includes any person alive on January 1, 2010, and who has been detected with kidney cancer at any point of time which is before January 1, 2010, were the people who either had this illness or have been cured of it at an earlier stage and are in the recovery process.

Kidney cancer statistics and life expectancy can be increased if the detection of cancer is done at an early stage.

It is always advised to keep a check on the signs and symptoms of kidney cancer so that one can live a healthy and a longer life.
