In brief: Kidney Cancer

If you are referring to primary kidney cancer, depending on the size of the tumor and whether it has penetrated a blood vessel, or lymph node, it is possible to spread to adjacent tissues or more distant sites, such as the liver and lungs.
Even if it does, as a stage iii or IV tumor, in addition to your surgery, there are chemotherapy, radiation, biological and targeted therapies available.

In brief: Yes

Unfortunately, renal cancer can spread beyond the kidney, in which case it is called metastatic.
