Kidney Cancer occurs when healthy cells from a kidney or both change and grow uncontrollably, forming a mass called a tumor. A malignant tumor is cancerous, meaning it can grow and spread to other parts of the body. An inactive tumor is cancerous, but this type of tumor rarely spreads to other body parts. A benign tumor means that the tumor can grow but will not spread.
People with kidney cancer may experience the following symptoms or signs. Sometimes, people with this type of cancer do not have any of these symptoms.
The major symptoms of kidney cancer are as follows:
* Blood in the urine
* Pain or pressure in the side or back
* A mass or lump on the side or back
* Swelling of the ankles and legs
* High blood pressure
* Anemia, ie low red blood cell count
* Loss of appetite
* Weight loss for no apparent reason
* recurring fever that is not related to a cold, flu or other infection
* In men, the rapid development of a group of enlarged veins, known as varicocele, around a testicle
Kidney cancer is most often treated with surgery, targeted therapy, or immunotherapy. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy are used frequently.
Surgery is the removal of the tumor and surrounding tissue healthy part during an operation. If the cancer has not spread outside the kidney, surgery to remove the tumor, part of the kidney or the entire kidney, and possibly tissue and nearby lymph nodes, may be the only treatment needed.
