Kidney Cancer Treatment
As kidney cancer grows, it may invade organs near the kidney, such as the liver, colon, or pancreas. Kidney cancer cells may also break away from the original tumor and spread to other parts of the body. When kidney cancer spreads, cancer cells may appear in the lymph nodes. For this reason, lymph nodes near the kidney may be removed during surgery. If a pathologist finds cancer cells in your lymph nodes, it may mean that the disease has spread to other parts of the body. Kidney cancer may spread and form new tumors, most often in the bones or lungs. The new tumors have the same kind of abnormal cells and the same name as the original tumor in the kidney. For example, if kidney cancer spreads to the lungs, the cancer cells in the lungs are kidney cancer cells. The disease is metastatic kidney cancer; it is not lung cancer.
Kidney Cancer Symptoms
Kidney cancer symptoms are often very difficult to recognize and in many cases do not show up into the disease has progressed beyond the initial stages. Because there often are no kidney cancer symptoms apparent until the disease has progressed, regular doctor visits are your most effective chance for early detection of kidney cancer. Kidney cancer symptoms that may show up include weight loss, fatigue, and blood in your urine. Remember, if you feel you are at risk for developing kidney cancer you need to visit your doctor.
