OBJECTIVE Tumor stage, histological pattern, cell type, diameter and cell ploidy are the factor that have been proposed for predicting the prognosis of renal cell carcinoma (RCC). There is a wide variation in the reported incidence of p53 mutation in RCC, and its prognostic significance for this tumor is unknown. We investigated the prognostic value of p53 mutations among other prognostic factors. PATIENTS AND METHOD We evaluated the stages, tumor diameters, histological grades, cellular… CONTINUE READING
