We assessed the treatment outcome of 71 patients (45 men and 26 women) with renal cell cancer treated at the Public Toyooka Hospital from 1969 to 1992. The patient's age varied from 15 to 85 (mean 64). The overall actuarial and disease specific survival rates at 5 years were 55% and 67%, respectively. Statistical analysis of various parameters associated with prognosis was performed. The parameters achieving statistical significance were pT, PV, distant metastasis, grade, histological architecture, cell type, tumor size and erythrocyte sedimentation rate.
