Introduction: Low Mean Erythrocyte Hemoglobin Concentrations (MCHC) has been linked to tumor oxygenation issues and anemia connected to cancer, according to studies. It is unknown, though, what role MCHC plays in renal cell cancer patients. In this study, Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma (CCRCC) patients had their preoperative MCHC evaluated for its predictive usefulness. Materials and Methods: Patients diagnosed with CCRCC and undergoing nephrectomy at our institution between 2003 and 2012 were included in the retrospective analysis. Preoperative MCHC was correlated with clinicopathological characteristics and survival rate using the Cox proportional hazards regression model and the Kaplan-Meier method. Results: Overall Survival (OS, P<0.001) and Cancer-Specific Survival (CSS, P<0.001) were favorably linked with MCHC levels in patients with CCRCC, as depicted by the Kaplan-Meier method. Univariate analysis showed that MCHC was substantially linked with OS [Hazard Ratio (HR)=0.278; 95% Confidence Interval (CI) (0.146-0.530); P<0.001] and CSS [HR=0.244; 95% CI (0.125-0.476); P<0.001] in patients with CCRCC. In multivariate analysis, higher MCHC was linked to better OS [HR=0.296; 95% CI (0.144-0.609); P<0.001] and CSS [HR=0.249; 95% CI (0.116-0.533)); P<0.001], suggesting that preoperative MCHC level is an independent predictor of CCRCC. Conclusion: Our data imply that in patients with CCRCC, preoperative MCHC is a more accurate predictor of OS and CSS.
