Kidney Cancer Awareness Month

While you may be thinking of coloring eggs and consuming large chocolate bunnies for the upcoming holiday, we’ve been focused on getting the word out about another important holiday – Kidney Cancer Awareness Month. During March, we want to spread the word about the signs and treatments for kidney cancer that are now available. Kidney cancer is one of the ten most common forms of cancer for both women and men, especially for older adults. Early diagnosis is so important to successfully treating the disease.

About Kidney Cancer

Kidney cancer affects mostly older people, with the average diagnosed age being 64. Men have a higher risk than women. Kidney cancer occurs when abnormal cells grow out of control in the kidney and form a growth or tumor. By far the most common type of kidney cancer is renal cell carcinoma when these abnormal cells form in the lining of the kidney’s tiny tubes (tubules). There are more than 20 types of cancer cells and several types of cancer. If left untreated, the cancer can cause kidney failure and eventually lead to death.

Treatment for Kidney Cancer

Effectively treating kidney tumors is challenging because of the natural movement of the tumor as you breathe and because studies show that kidney tumors require a high dose of radiation to be effective. Thankfully, Palo Verde Radiation Oncology Center offers a comprehensive array of radiation treatments that will give you the chance for the best possible outcomes.
