- The Renal Tubule
- The Renal Pelvis
Types of Kidney Cancer: There are several types of kidney cancer but the most commonly detected in people are listed below
- Renal Cell Carcinoma
- Transitional Cell Carcinoma
- Wilm’s Tumor
Renal Cell Carcinoma: The reported cases of cancer consists 85% of the kidney cancer. It develops in the tiny tubes of the kidneys.
Transitional Cell Carcinoma: It develops in to the passage of kidney and bladder where the urine resides before moving toward the bladder. It’s similar to the cancer of bladder.

Its other treatments include flap surgeries, bone and tissue graft. Flap surgery has process of lifting the gums at back to remove the tartar and the bone, tissue grafts has the processes of replacing the bone/gum tissues but it can be unpredictable.
Researches: the findings of a research made recently showed the strong connection between kidney cancer and the periodontal diseases in the Prestigious Journal (Lancet Oncology) by stating that the kidney cancer’s risk grows with the growth of gum diseases by 50 %. To lessen this, ADA has recommended people to brush their teeth two times a day and to consult the dentist regularly. And if you have this disease then you should visit you doctor every 3 months.
