If this tumor is left untreated, it may spreadto the nearby tissues and organs. The most common type ofkidney cancer is renal carcinoma. Its specific is that the tumorcells begin to grow in the lining of the tiny tubes of the organcalled tubules.Unfortunately the exact cause of cancer is not known for thistype of cancer.

  3. 3. risk factor that may increase your chances of getting kidneycancer is taking pain medications for an extended period oftime. Smoking raises the risk of many types of cancer andkidney cancer is no different. Research indicates that smokersare two times more likely to develop the condition than non-smokers.Research shows that if anyone in your family has had kidneycancer in the past, you will be at a higher risk as well. Anothermedical condition that may increase your risk is havingadvanced kidney disease. There are also a few geneticconditions that can increase the risk as well.Cancer treatment is more effective when cancer is caught earlyso knowing the symptoms is a vital part in preventing andtreating cancer. The most common kidney cancer symptomsinclude blood in the urine and a lump in your side or abdominalarea.

In a lot of cases,this type of cancer can be diagnosed without a biopsy.If you are diagnosed with kidney cancer the normal treatmentis using a surgery called nephrectomy. During this surgery, partof the kidney may be removed. They also may remove thewhole kidney and maybe some nearby adrenal glands andlymph nodes as well. IF surgery is not possible, your doctor mayuse other types of treatments like creotherapy, which usesextreme cold to kill the malignant cells, and radiofrequencytherapy, which uses radio waves with high energy.
