YOUR DOCTOR HAS SAID THAT YOU HAVE A TYPE OF CANCER CALLED mRCC
Renal cell carcinoma is the most common type of kidney cancer. It occurs when cancer cells form in the tubules of the kidney. Tubules are tiny tubes in your kidney that help filter waste products from your blood and make urine.2,3
It is called mRCC, or metastatic renal cell carcinoma, if cancer cells spread to other parts of the body.4
mRCC OCCURS IN ONE OF THREE WAYS:4
Cancer cells in your kidney spread into the tissue around the tumor.
The cancer moves from your kidney into your lymphatic system, which has vessels throughout the body.
Kidney cancer cells enter the bloodstream and are carried and deposited to another organ or area in your body.
YOUR TREATMENT TEAM IS THERE TO HELP
Because mRCC can impact you and your loved ones' lives, it is important to work closely with your treatment team. If you have questions, reach out to your doctor’s office directly for more information.
