In brief: Yes
Papillary renal cell carcinoma is a type of kidney cancer.

The best case scenario is for renal cell carcinoma to be diagnosed early in its course when surgical removal can be curative. If the disease metastasizes (spreads out of the kidney), then the chance of cure is greatly diminished.
