Since it could not be determined whether the cystic lymph node was caused by cancer metastasis, malignant lymphoma, or inflammatory disease, the patient underwent right radical nephrectomy with retroperitoneal localized lymphoidectomy in consideration for his general status.
Taken together, regardless of the tumor size, there is a possibility that a retroperitoneal cystic mass with a renal tumor can be a lymph node metastasis of RCC caused by obstruction of the lymphatic vessels draining the kidney by tumor cells, and if surgical treatment is considered, retroperitoneal lymphoidectomy as well as nephrectomy may be performed.
