Tumors of the Kidney
Both benign and malignant tumors occur in the kidney.  With the exception of oncocytoma, the benign tumors rarely cause clinical problems. Malignant tumors, on the other hand,
are of great importance clinically and deserve considerable emphasis. By far the most common of these malignant tumors is renal cell carcinoma, followed by Wilms tumor, which is found
in children and is described in
