Many cases of kidney cancer tend to be in those over the age of 45 and occur more often in men than women, but kidney cancer can affect anyone, said Dr. Rezwan Islam.

In recognition of National Kidney Cancer Awareness Month, Aspirus Health aims to bring awareness to kidney cancer and encourage individuals to show support for those affected.

Kidney cancer, also known as renal cancer, is one of the most common cancers in the United States, with more than 79,000 new diagnoses and 13,920 deaths in 2022, according to the National Institutes of Health.
