collecting duct carcinoma

^ http://www.ebi.ac.uk/efo/EFO_0003016


Collecting duct carcinoma is a renal cell carcinoma described as a rare and aggressive type of renal cell carcinoma. The cancerous cells form irregular tubes inside the tumor. Collecting duct carcinoma is more common among young people and unfortunately is diagnosed in most cases when the cancer has metastasized (spread inside the body).

Also known as collecting duct carcinoma, this is a rare type of renal carcinoma. It arises from the collecting ducts of the renal medulla, and most authors suggest that this is an aggressive tumor.
