Answer

Renal pelvis tumors rarely occur before age 40 years. The peak incidence is in the 60- to 70-year age group. Men are affected approximately 2 times as frequently as women are. The incidence is slightly higher in African Americans than in other races; reported rates are similar among white Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans. Renal pelvic tumors are less common in Asian Americans.
