BLANCO ESPINOSA, A. et al. Association of renal cell carcinoma and radiation exposure after the Chernobyl accident. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2003, vol.27, n.2, pp.164-167. ISSN 0210-4806.

After the nuclear accident of Chernobyl, in the population of zones contaminated the malignant renal tumors was increased from 4,7 to 7,5 per 100.000 of total population. Cesium 137 (137Cs) constitutes 80- 90% of the internal exposure of these people as well as eliminated through kidneys becomes an important risk factor. We present a case of a patient, residing in radiocontamined area, who consulted for abdominal pain and left flank mass. We review relevant literature and the management of these patients.
