Kidney Cancer


Renal cell cancer is the most common type of kidney cancer and occurs more often in male than in the female. In this renal cell cancer begins small and grows larger over the time period. Day by day renal cell cancer usually grows as a single mass in the kidney, a kidney may contain more than one tumor, or tumors may be found in both kidneys at the same time. Some renal cell cancer is noticed only after they have become quite large, but in this time we can easily treat cancer if it's diagnosed in his early stage by the kidney cancer specialist in Noida as well as Ghaziabad.

Symptom of Kidney Cancer


Due to the deep location of the kidneys, there may not be any symptoms until the tumor has grown quite large. The most common symptom is blood in the urine or it may include:

  • A lump or mass in the kidney area

  • Recurrent fever

  • Rapid weight loss

  • Lingering dull ache or pain in the side, abdomen or lower back

  • Tenderness in the abdomen and kidney region fever, chills, loss of appetite.

  • Feeling fatigued or in poor health.

  • This procedures can be done by laparoscopy, open surgery or robotic surgery.


Nephrectomy


A nephrectomy is an operation to remove a kidney.

If a tumour is less than 4cm (1.5 inches) in diameter, it may only be necessary to remove some of your kidneys. This is known as a partial nephrectomy. A partial nephrectomy may also be required if your remaining kidney is in poor health.

If a tumour is more than 4cm in diameter, your entire kidney will need to be removed. Even if cancer has spread beyond your kidney, you may still benefit from having your kidney removed.

Removing the kidney can help resolve the pain, and make other types of non-surgical treatment more effective.

It's possible to live a normal life with only one kidney because the other kidney will be able to compensate.

During a nephrectomy, the surgeon may also remove nearby lymph nodes to make sure cancer hasn't spread beyond the kidney.

There are two ways that both a partial and open nephrectomy can be performed They are an:

  • Open nephrectomy – where the kidney is removed through a large incision in your abdomen (stomach)

  • Laparoscopic or keyhole nephrectomy – where a series of smaller incisions are made in your abdomen and the kidney is removed using small surgical instruments

  • These surgeries are performed by Robot also because you will be treated by Robotic surgeons in Noida.
