In a study of 120,852 participants in the prospective Netherlands Cohort Study (NLCS), Jeroen A.A. van de Pol, and colleagues at Maastricht University in Maastricht, The Netherlands, found that individuals who reported a history of kidney stones had a significant 39% greater risk of RCC overall compared with those who did not, after adjusting for multiple variables, van de Pol’s team reported in the British Journal of Cancer. When the investigators examined the association by RCC type, they found that a history of kidney stones was associated with a significant 3-fold increased risk of papillary RCC (pRCC), but was not significantly associated with clear-cell RCC (ccRCC).
