Whast is Renal Cancer?
Kidney cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the kidneys. This involves the uncontrolled spread of cancer cells in the kidney tubes.
There are different types of kidney cancer:
- Renal cell carcinoma
- Transitional cell carcinoma
- Wilms tumor
It should be noted that this type of cancer is a disorder that affects, above all, adults over 50 years of age and, generally, men.
How is it treated?
Kidney cancer is often treated with surgery, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, or a combination of these treatments. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy are used occasionally.
It should be noted that the type of treatment that is decided to apply will depend on several factors, among them, the type of cells and the stage of the cancer, the possible side effects, as well as the preferences of the patient and his general state of health.
