Kanker Ginjal

  • What is Kidney Cancer?

    The kidneys are bean-shaped organs located on each side of the spine, just behind the intestines. They act as filters to remove excess fluid, electrolytes and waste from the blood. Different types of cancer can develop in the kidney.

    Renal cell carcinoma is the most common type of kidney cancer in adults. It starts in the lining of tubules (very small tubes) in the kidneys and starts growing uncontrollably to form a single mass (tumour) within the kidney. More than one tumour can develop in one or both kidneys. This cancer occurs mainly in men aged 50 – 70 years old.

  • There are no known causes for kidney cancer. There are, however, some risk factors that may increase the chances of developing kidney cancer. These include:

    • Age (between 50 – 70 years of age)
    • Gender (men are at higher risk than women)
    • Race (African, American and Chinese)
    • Smoking
  • Symptoms of kidney cancer include:

    • Anaemia (low red blood cells)
    • Back pain
    • Blood in the urine (could also be a sign of other diseases)
    • Tiredness
    • Fever
    • Flank pain (Pain in upper abdomen, back or sides)
    • Lump on one side of the tummy
    • Weight loss
  • If the kidney cancer is still in its early stages, the most efficient treatment is:

    • Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy – a minimally invasive surgery to completely remove all or the affected parts of the kidney

    If the kidney cancer is advanced and has spread outside the kidney, the treatment might include a combination of the following, depending on the person's condition:

    • Immunotherapy – to fight the cancer cells using the body’s immune system
    • Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy – to stop the bleeding and pain from the cancer
    • Radiation therapy – which may be used to reduce pain and stop the bleeding from the cancer
    • Targeted therapy – which uses agents to block blood supply to cancer cells
