A.

In many cases, people may have no early symptoms of kidney cancer. As the tumor grows larger, symptoms may appear. You may have one or more of these kidney cancer symptoms:

  • Blood in your urine
  • A lump in your side or abdomen
  • A loss of appetite
  • A pain in your side that doesn't go away
  • Weight loss that occurs for no known reason
  • Fever that lasts for weeks and isn't caused by a cold or other infection
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Anemia
  • Swelling in your ankles or legs.

Kidney cancer that spreads to other parts of your body may cause other symptoms, such as:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Coughing up blood
  • Bone pain.
