Overview of Kidney Cancer

They kidneys are two bean-shaped organs sitting on either side of the spine in the lower abdomen. Each about the size of a fist, they’re responsible for cleaning toxins and pollutants from the blood, helping the body’s cardiovascular system function correctly. While kidney cancer can be fatal, it’s often relatively easy to treat if it’s found before metastasizing (spreading) to other areas of the body. With early detection and treatment, we can help you overcome kidney cancer through convenient radiation therapy cancer treatment.

Kidney Cancer Symptoms

Unfortunately, kidney cancer often produces no symptoms early on. As the cancer develops, patients may start to experience a number of symptoms, including:

  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Chronic loss of appetite
  • Anemia
  • Blood in the urine
  • Swollen legs or ankles
  • Persistent fever that lasts weeks that isn’t caused by a cold or infection
  • An unusual lump in the back, side, or abdomen

Kidney Cancer Risk Factors

Scientists still don’t understand the exact causes of kidney cancer, but a number of factors appear to increase the risk of developing it:

  • Obesity
  • High blood pressure
  • Tobacco consumption
  • Family history of kidney cancer
  • Long-term use of certain prescription & over the counter pain medications
  • Long-term exposure to chemicals like asbestos, cadmium, and some herbicides
  • Being male or African-American (scientists still don’t understand why these groups are at a higher risk)
