Kidney Cancer

Kidney cancer is generally observed in between 50-70 ages. It is observed 2-3 times more than women in men. The reason of kidney cancer is not yet fully known. However, factors such as smoking, genetic factors, high blood pressure, fatness, occupational risk factors (steel industry, petroleum, cadmium, lead industry employees) and exposure to radiation increase risk.

Kidney cancers do not show many symptoms initially. However as the tumour progresses, symptoms such as blood in the urine, pain, inaccetence, weight loss, recurring high fever, high blood temperature and anaemia emerge.

Surgery constitutes main treatment in kidney tumour. Radiotherapy can be applied as supportive treatment in addition to surgery.
