'Sub-Type' RCC ??

I've recently been reading several posts where people are listing a 'Sub-Type' RCC. Do all RCC's have a sub-type?
I've recently had a full and my path report came back Stage 1, Grade 1, but no sub-type. I asked my Dr about this yesterday and he didn't indicate there was one.

Thoughts?

Your path report should show sub-type - probably clear cell - unless the histology is unclassifiable (which is usually not good news). Since your report is Stage 1 and Grade 1 - as good as it gets - your sub-type hardly matters. At Grade 1 you won't be sarcomatoid or unclassified.

It does indicate 'Clear Cell'. I wasn't aware that this is a sub-type.

Thank you.

....It's time to buy a lottery ticket. I wish we all had that classification.

Clear cell is the most frequent sub-type and the one about which most is known - an advantage when it comes to treatment, but you shouldn't need any more treatment. Your glass is much more than half full.
