is it possible to have renal cell carcinoma while glomerular filtration rate is normal or 59?

Yes: It is definitely possible, although given your age it is unlikely. Renal cell carcinomas are typically diagnosed during CT workups of other medical problems. They typically do not present with active symptoms unless the cancer burden is locally advanced and/or metastatic.
