Solid tumors of adult kidney are the most malignant tumors of human body After bladder tumors, they are the commonest solid tumors of urinary tract.
There is a tendency to study these lesions by modalities other than sonography and for this reason there are some doubts in studying these tumors by sonography. For resolving these doubts , the first step is to reveal the different sonographic shapes of these lesions in order to do other investigations for determining efficiency of sonography in diagnosis of solid tumors of kidney.
thus, in a descriptive research on patients with clinical findings related to urinary system who had referred to sonographic centers, 39 patients (who had solid tumors of kidney ) were selected and the sonographic shapes of their lesions were determined and patients were followed until determining pathological diagnosis. Finally, the pathologic combination of solid lesions of kidney and their frequency were determined and their sonographic features and their frequency were revealed. In addition, their clinical findings and frequency were also determined.
It turned out to be that renal cell carcinoma is the commonest symptomatic solid tumor of kidney and its commonest sonographic feature is mixed echo and the most common clinical finding of these lesions is pain. The peak age for solid lesions of kidney is sixth decade.
