Mercy Medical Center North Iowa

2012 Annual Report

Kidney Cancer in the 21st Century

Looking back through the years of data from the Mercy Cancer Center Registry kidney cancer data, there appears to be on the average of about 27 new cases diagnosed yearly. When comparing data nationally the treatment of choice is surgery. Mercy’s data from 2011 showed a much higher rate among the male population, with 19 males vs. 8 females diagnosed with kidney cancer.

There are some articles here from the physician staff and ancillary staff that play a major role in the care of the kidney cancer patient. There are many statistical graphs as well.
