“With an estimated 82,000 new cases in 2023, it’s critical to raise awareness and ensure the public knows the Kidney Cancer Association fast facts so they can look for possible symptoms and warning signs (including blood in the urine, abdominal mass, back or flank pain, low blood count, and anemia,)” the release says. 

March is Kidney Cancer Awareness Month.
