Cancer in Kidney

Kidney cancer, also known as renal cancer, is a condition in which kidney cells become malignant (cancerous) and develop uncontrollably, resulting in the formation of a tumor. Almost all kidney cancers begin in the lining of the kidney’s tiny tubes (tubules). The good thing is that most of these tumors are discovered before they spread to other parts of the body.

The good thing is that the majority of these tumors are discovered before they migrate to other tissues. And tumors that are detected early are easier to handle effectively. These tumors, however, may develop to be very large before being identified. 

Kidney Cancer Causes

Tobacco use: If you smoke tobacco, the chance of developing kidney cancer is double that of nonsmokers. 

Being a man: Men are about twice as likely as women to develop kidney cancer.

Obesity: Excess weight will induce hormonal changes that increase the risk.

Long-term use of such pain relievers: This covers both over-the-counter and prescription medications.

Having a hereditary disorder such as von Hippel-Lindau syndrome or inherited papillary renal cell carcinoma.

Having a diagnosis of kidney cancer in one’s family. Siblings are particularly vulnerable.

Exposure of such contaminants, such as asbestos, cadmium, benzene, organic solvents, or herbicides.

Cancer of Kidney Treatment

Kidney cancer surgery: These are the most common forms of kidney cancer surgery. The kind you have is determined by the stage of your cancer.

Open Nephrectomy: An open partial nephrectomy is the removal of a section of the kidney to remove the whole tumor.

Extreme Nephrectomy: Kidney cancer may be treated by radical nephrectomy, which involves surgically removing the entire kidney, as well as the adrenal gland and any surrounding tissue.

Simple Nephrectomy: Some patients with early kidney cancer can benefit from a simple nephrectomy, which requires only removing the kidney.

A partial nephrectomy is where a surgeon cuts the portion of the kidney that contains the tumor. Only in people with small kidney cancers can this treatment be used where the patient has only one kidney or if cancer involves both kidneys.
