Several subtypes of kidney cancer have also been reported in the Mainz classification of renal tumors (PDF). Note (see below) that the NOS term, 8312/3 Renal cell carcinoma, NOS, is actually a higher number than one of the subtypes. This is an exception to the convention that subtypes generally have a higher number than the NOS term. Note also that "papillary renal cell carcinoma" is a synonym for "papillary adenocarcinoma" (8260/3).
|8260/3||Papillary renal cell carcinoma|
|8312/3||Renal cell carcinoma, NOS]|
The following renal cell carcinoma diagnoses are new terms with new codes:
|8316/3||Cyst-associated renal cell carcinoma|
|8317/3||Chromophobe type renal cell carcinoma|
|8318/3||Sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma
Spindle cell renal carcinoma
