What are the Symptoms of Renal Tumors?

Over half of renal tumors are found by chance and may have no symptoms. They often are found when your doctor is doing a test for other health problems. Tumors found in this way are more likely localized to the kidney. These types of tumors have good outcomes. Most renal masses have no symptoms in the early stages. But, if there are symptoms, they will most likely be:

  • Hematuria (blood in urine)
  • Flank pain between the ribs and hips and hips 
  • Low back pain on one side (not caused by injury) and that does not go away
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss not caused by dieting
  • Fever not caused by an infection and that does not go away
  • Anemia (low red blood cell count)
