Kidney cancer. Light micrograph of a section through a kidney affected by clear cell papillary renal cell carcinoma (CCPRCC). Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) originates in the lining of the proximal convoluted tubule, the very small tubes in the kidney that transport GF (glomerular filtrate) from the glomerulus to the descending limb of the nephron. It is the most common type of kidney cancer in adults. CCPRCC has microscopic morphologic features of papillary renal cell carcinoma and clear cell renal cell carcinoma, yet is pathologically distinct based on molecular changes and immunohistochemistry. Magnification: x280, when printed 10 centimetres wide.
