What is Kidney Cancer?

Kidney cancer is cancer that starts in the kidney. Your kidneys (you have two) are bean-shaped organs, each about the size of your fist. They're located behind your abdominal organs, with one kidney on each side of your spine. In adults, the most common type of kidney cancer is called renal cell carcinoma.
