In brief: Variable

Generally speaking, the single strongest predictor of growth rate of kidney cancer is fuhrman grade.
Grade refers to microscopic features of the tumor cell nucleus. Certain cell types or variants of kidney cancer may also be associated with rapid growth in that they may typically act aggressively and are usually high grade cancers (eg, collecting duct and medullary cancers).
