Hi all!

Can anybody please provide me with the link to official kidney cancer UK statistics showing the number of people diagnosed in various age groups for the year 2009-2010 please?

As tomorrow is world kidney cancer day and it has been just over 10 years since I had RCC, i want to do a post on social media about how exceptionally rare it was in my age group to raise awareness. I was officially diagnosed age 20 (it was found on a scan a couple of days before my 20th however) and I am shocked by how extremely rare it is in that age group.

thanks

Hi Laura, I hope you are doing well, I have never heard of anyone diagnosed at such an early age. I was diagnosed at the age of 40 in 2015 and doctors said that it is rare to have under the age of 60.

I do not have any link but I hope you get one, all the best with everything in life Laura

Take care

I’m 36 and they were adamant it wouldn’t be cancer because I didn’t fit the typical statistic. But a biopsy showed it was. So glad you found it.
