Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for 3% of adult deaths from cancer. The risk factors for its development are still under intense investigation. Although tobacco smoke is a risk factor, the data are inconsistent and the extent of the increased risk is unclear. Estimates from 19 case‐control and 5 cohort studies were used. The case‐control reports included 8,032 cases and 13,800 controls; the cohort estimates were based on 1,457,754 participants with 1,326 cases of RCC. The relative risk (RR… 
Alcohol consumption, tobacco smoking, and subsequent risk of renal cell carcinoma: The JPHC study
TLDR
A slightly inverse but nonsignificant association was observed between alcohol drinking and RCC incidence, and the risk of RCC was increased in those with heavy smoking, and when men and women were combined.
Risk Factors for Renal Cell Carcinoma in the Vitamin and Lifefstyle (VITAL) Study
TLDR
A prospective cohort was used to validate established RCC risk factors and to evaluate more controversial risk factors for incident RCC and found no association between alcohol, fruit, or vegetable intake and RCC.
Etiologic heterogeneity of clear‐cell and papillary renal cell carcinoma in the Netherlands Cohort Study
TLDR
Assessment of the heterogeneity between body mass index (BMI), cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption and hypertension across clear‐cell RCC (ccRCC) and papillary R CC (pR CC) risk in the prospective Netherlands Cohort Study on diet and cancer observed potential heterogeneity for BMI, BMI change and smoking duration across ccRCC and pRCC risk.
The impact of smoking on survival in renal cell carcinoma: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Preliminary evidence that current smoking in a patient with RCC is associated with poorer survival is provided, demonstrating active smoking to be an independent risk for prognosis of RCC.
Alcohol drinking and risk of renal cell carcinoma: results of a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The hypothesis of a negative effect of moderate alcohol consumption on the risk of renal cell cancer is supported, and the meta-analysis supports the hypothesis.
Risk factors for renal cell cancer: the multiethnic cohort.
TLDR
Results show that body mass index, smoking, and hypertension are risk factors for renal cell cancer in both sexes.
Smoking, environmental tobacco smoke, and risk of renal cell cancer: a population-based case-control study
TLDR
Differences in methods of retrospective measurement of lifetime smoking and ETS exposure may contribute to discrepancies in measures of associations across studies, and should be addressed in future research.
Reproductive, menstrual, and other hormone‐related factors and risk of renal cell cancer
TLDR
Findings give support to a role of hysterectomy in increasing RCC risk without corroborating, however, a major role of female hormone‐related factors.

Smoking and renal cell carcinoma.
TLDR
A direct and significant dose-risk relationship was observed among current smokers, and this pattern of risk, together with the absence of appreciable confounding, adds further evidence for a causal nature of the association between smoking and renal cell cancer.
International renal‐cell cancer study. I. Tobacco use
TLDR
The findings of this pooled analysis confirm that cigarette smoking is a causal factor in the etiology of RCC.
Tobacco use in relation to renal cell carcinoma.
TLDR
A population-based case-control study was conducted in Los Angeles, California that involved 1204 RCC patients and an equal number of neighborhood controls who were matched to the index cases by sex, date of birth (within 5 years), and race.
Risk factors for renal cell carcinoma: results of a population-based case-control study
TLDR
The data indicate the need for further exploration of passive smoking and diuretics as risk factors, as well as elucidation of mechanisms by which high lifetime QI and frequent urinary-tract infections might increase risk of this cancer.
Risk factors for renal cell carcinoma in Denmark. I. Role of socioeconomic status, tobacco use, beverages, and family history
TLDR
The association with socioeconomic status remained after adjustment for other factors, and Observations were inconsistent regarding coffee and alcohol consumption, and the authors found no association with tea drinking.
Differential survival related to smoking among patients with renal cell carcinoma.
TLDR
The relation between tobacco smoking and survival among renal cell carcinoma cases, using information from a population-based cancer registry, was examined, with current smokers more likely than non-smokers to have distant disease.

TLDR
A hospital‐based case‐control study of renal‐cell carcinoma was conducted in France from 1987 to 1991 and found no significant trend was found in the risks with increasing Quetelet index at the age of 20 in males or in females.

TLDR
A hospital-based case-control study of renal cell cancer was conducted in northern Italy between 1986 and 1989, with 240 cases of renalcell cancer and 665 controls chosen on the basis of age, sex, and area of residence.
