We present the case of metastasis of renal cell carcinoma to the urethra in a 77-year-old woman who underwent -nephrectomy 6 years ago due to renal cell carcinoma. After 3 years, she returned to the ward due to a small, palpable nodule in the area of the urethra that turned out to be a cancer of the clear cell carcinoma. Despite the resection of the -lesion with negative margins in the pathology examination, a local regrowth in the same area was diagnosed in the MRI 8 months after the first episode of metastasis and was successfully removed. The patient keeps urine properly.
