WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF KIDNEY CANCER?

Kidney cancer begins in the kidneys, each of which is about the size of a fist and shaped like a bean. The kidneys are located behind your intra-abdominal organs so that there is one on each side of your spine. Turkey Medicals member and JCI hospital department Urologist Op. Dr. gave information about the subject.

The most common type of kidney cancer in adults is renal cell carcinoma, which accounts for 90 percent of cancerous tumors. Other less common types of kidney cancer may also develop. The most likely type of kidney cancer to occur in young children is a Wilms tumor.

The incidence of kidney cancer seems to be increasing. One reason for this may be the fact that imaging tests such as computed tomography (CT) can be used more often. These tests can lead to the accidental discovery of more cases of kidney cancer. In many cases, kidney cancer is detected at an early stage, when the tumors are small and limited in the kidneys, making them easier to treat.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF KIDNEY CANCER?

Kidney cancer rarely causes signs or symptoms in the early stages. Currently, there are no routine tests used to screen for kidney cancer in the absence of symptoms. Signs and symptoms of kidney cancer in the later stages may include: The appearance of pink, red, or cola-colored urine as a result of the presence of blood in the urine Back or side pain that does not go away Loss of appetite Unexplained weight loss Fatigue Begins and spontaneously passes fever.

WHEN SHOULD YOU SEE A DOCTOR IN TURKEY?

Make an appointment with your Turkish doctor if you have any persistent signs or symptoms that make you anxious. What are the causes of kidney cancer? Although there are several risk factors, the factor that causes renal cell cancer, the most common type of kidney cancer, is unknown. Doctors know that kidney cancer begins when a mutation develops in the DNA of some cancer cells. These mutations cause cells to grow and multiply rapidly. Abnormal cells that multiply form a tumor that can extend outside the kidney. Some cells can leave the mass and spread to distant areas of the body (metastasize).
