Understanding Cancer: Metastasis, Stages of Cancer, and More

What are kidney cancer symptoms and signs?

Common symptoms of kidney cancer include:

  • Blood in the urine (making the urine slightly rusty to deep red)
  • Pain in your side that doesn't go away
  • A lump or mass in the side or the abdomen
  • Weight loss for no known reason
  • Fever

These symptoms may be caused by kidney cancer or by other health problems, such as an infection or a kidney cyst. People with these symptoms should tell their doctor so that any problem can be diagnosed and treated as early as possible.
