X-ray: In the past, most kidney cancers were detected at a high stage or late stage (the cancer has grown large and invaded other structures) and therefore the signs were a large mass that can be felt, hematuria, or side/back pain. However today many kidney cancers are being detected at an early stage (small and limited to the kidney) because patients have x-rays (ct scan) for other reasons.See 2 more doctor answers

Other symptoms may be flank discomfort, ruddiness of coomplexion, weakness and renal colic if there are blood cloots due to frank bleeding.See 1 more doctor answer

See list: Flank pain. Hematuria. Flank mass. Weight loss. Occasionally symptoms of metastatic disease (bone pain). In rare cases unusual syndromes mimicking other medical conditions can be the presenting symptom. These are called "paraneoplastic syndromes".

See below: It is unlikely that a person can localize pain to the kidney. It would have helped if you had listed the symptoms, as early kidney cancer may not have any. If you must, discuss it with your doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
Blood, pain, mass.: There is a classic triad of hematuria (blood in urine), flank pain, and abdominal mass this presents with, but is seen in only 10-20% of patients. Hematuria (40%), flank pain (40%), mass (33%), and weight loss (33%) are the most common individual syndromes. Paraneoplastic syndromes-erythrocytosis (3%), hypercalcemia (5%), and nonmetastatic hepatic dysfunction (stauffer's syndrome) (15%) occur.See 1 more doctor answer

It has been shown to help prevent progression and death from cancer when compared to placebo (sugar pill). It can help get and keep kidney cancer under control, but cannot cure the cancer (make it go away and stay away).See 1 more doctor answer

No: Transvaginal ultrasound is best used to look at structures related to uterus and ovaries. To visualize the kidntey one needs at CAT scan or MRI.

The presence of hematuria should first be checked out by cystoscopy to see if there is a bladder lesion.See 3 more doctor answers
