Kidney Cancer

Renal cell cancer is a disease in which malignant cells form in proximal convoluted tubules of the kidney. The most common type of kidney cancer in adults is renal cell carcinoma also named as Hypernephroma, Renal adenocarcinoma or Grawitz’s tumor occurs most often in men 50 to 70 years old. Blacks are at higher risk than whites. Smoking and misuse of certain pain medicines can affect the risk of renal cell cancer. Hereditary factors have a minor impact. Blood in the urine and a lump in the abdomen are the signs of RCC and tests that examine these signs include CT scan, IVP, blood chemistry studies, urinalysis etc. The principal treatment options may include surgery, molecular-targeted therapy, and immunotherapy. The recommended treatment for renal cell cancer may be Nephrectomy or partial nephrectomy, surgical removal of all or part of the kidney. The incidence of RCC varies between sexes, ages, races and geographic location around the world as men have the higher incidence than women which has been increasing in frequency worldwide for about approximately 2-3% /decade until the last few years where the number of new cases has stabilised.
