CancerBro, can you please discuss the risk factors for kidney cancer in detail?

Kidney cancer is slightly more commonly seen in American Indians, Alaskan natives, and African Americans, especially in obese males.

Smoking is a risk factor for the disease, and incidence increases with duration and intensity of smoking.

Industrial exposure to certain heavy metals and organic compounds also increases the risk for kidney cancer.

People with advanced kidney disease, specially those needing repeated dialysis or kidney transplant are at higher risk of kidney cancer.

History of kidney cancer in family may also increase the risk in other family members.

So these were the risk factors for kidney cancer. These factors, if keep in mind, may help in reducing the risk of the disease.
