    During the last few years, the increasing use of diagnostic imaging (especially ultrasound) has allowed a remarkable rise in the detection of asymptomatic, early-stage renal neoplasms, possibly treatable by radical surgery. Renal cell carcinoma, however, is still the renal neoplastic condition...

    Background: Renal cancers represent ~3% of malignant tumors in adults and occur in a M:F ratio (1.5:1.0). Although in most cases it occurs in persons 50 to 70 years of age, there are also reports in children. Clear cell carcinoma is the most frequent histological type and 30% of renal carcinomas...

    Background: Bleeding from small bowel neoplasms account for 1—4% of cases of upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage. Renal cell carcinoma constitutes 3% of all adult malignancies and often presents insidiously. Consequently 25—30% of patients have metastases at the time of diagnosis....
