Abstract

Renal cell carcinoma is the most frequently encountered urological malignancy and accounts for 3% of all adult malignancies. The classically described triad of hematuria, palpable mass, and flank pain is rarely encountered, and most patients are diagnosed by screening done for other reasons. It is notorious for unusual sites of metastatic spread. We present a case of an asymptomatic renal cell carcinoma that presented as an anterior abdominal wall swelling and its neglect led to ulceration, and torrential and exsanguinating hemorrhage to which the patient succumbed.
