Introduction: Renal tumors comprise a diverse spectrum of neoplastic lesions with patterns that are relatively distinct for children and young adults.

Objectives: The basic aim of the study is to find the clinicopathologic patterns of adult renal tumors.

Material and methods: This retrospective study was conducted in 4 hospitals of  Peshawar: Northwest General Hospital Peshawar, Institute Of Kidney Diseases Hayatabad Medical Complex Peshawar, Lady Reading Hospital Peshawar and Khyber Teaching Hospital Peshawar  from june 2022 to January 2023. Sample sizes of 30 respondents were taken from each hospital. A total of 120 patients diagnosed with renal tumors were included in the analysis. Patients of all age groups and both genders were considered for inclusion.Data for this retrospective study on clinicopathologic patterns of adult renal tumors were collected systematically from the medical records of 120 patients. Demographic data, including age, gender, and ethnicity, were recorded for each patient to provide an overview of the study population.

Conclusion: It is concluded that, our study contributes to the growing body of knowledge regarding renal tumors by offering a comprehensive analysis of clinicopathologic patterns in a cohort of 110 adult patients. The findings highlight the importance of early recognition of clinical symptoms, the role of radiological evaluation in characterizing tumors, and the histological and molecular diversity of renal tumors.
