To the Editor: The article by Dr Chow and colleagues1 demonstrated that the incidence of renal cell carcinoma increased steadily from 1975 to 1995 in the United States, especially among African Americans. The authors determined that increased detection due to ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging did not fully explain the upward trend and suggested that other factors may be contributing.
