What type of cancer is Kidney cancer?
In Skin Cancer
- About 90% of kidney cancers are renal cell cancers (RCC). They are sometimes called renal adenocarcinoma. There are different subtypes of renal cell cancer which can be identified by looking at the cells under a microscope.
- There is a rarer type of kidney cancer, known as transitional cell cancer (TCC), which starts in the cells lining the central area of the kidney (the renal pelvis).

Answer . The biggest question would have to be what can "you" do to help fight the cancer. Being condfident is actually a good way to fight diseases. People are more prone to diseases if they are depressed. Eat right to keep your immune system in good condition, work out/exercise. Then the ne…xt question I would say is what can "he" do to help? What medical treatements are available? Ask him for details but always do your own research (the web is a great internet, there is more information online than anywhere). ( Full Answer )

Cancer is a class of diseases in which a group of cells display uncontrolled growth (division beyond the normal limits), invasion (intrusion on and destruction of adjacent tissues), and sometimes metastasis (spread to other locations in the body via lymph or blood).

Getting Bacteria What is bacteria?? *** EDITED ANSWER: Cancer refers to the uncontrolled division of cells which may cause tumour to develop. Cancerous cells don't need anchorage to divide; they also have the ability to divide endlessly (in other words, they cannot die like the normal cell…s). Cancer may be caused by mutation of the gene. When the gene which controls the cell cycle is mutated, the cells affected may begin to show cancerous properties and start dividing uncontrollably. The mutation of the gene itself can be caused by several factors, such as getting exposed to carcinogens or radiations which agitate the gene in the DNA, causing it to become faulty. ( Full Answer )
Cancerous cells divide uncontrollably. Usually they form a lump of tissue called a tumour . The exception to this is leukaemia, where the cancerous white cells do not form a lump but instead multiply in the bloodstream, stopping the blood from functioning normally. On its own a single tumour can ma…ke you quite ill, for example by pressing against nerves, blocking the digestive system or blood vessels, or by releasing hormones that can affect the normal workings of your body. Things can get much worse, however, if the cancer becomes malignant and spreads. This happens when a single cancerous cell breaks away from the main tumour and starts growing and dividing elsewhere in the body. To do this, it must acquire more mutations that allow it to survive in other parts of the body. For a cancer cell to spread, it must be able to do two things that the normal cell it grew from could not: . it must be able to leave its usual environment and travel through the blood or lymph system, a process called invasion . . when it arrives at its new location, it must be able to make new blood vessels grow around it and supply it with oxygen and nutrients, a process known as angiogenesis . The whole process of a tumour gaining new mutations as it divides and then spreading to other parts of the body is called metastasis . Once a tumour metastasises, it is much more difficult to treat, and can make you much more ill because more areas of the body are affected. Different types of cancer often 'prefer' to spread to other sites in the body. For example, prostate cancer often spreads to the bones. Sometimes cells can divide uncontrollably without being able to spread. These cells form a benign tumour, which can be easily removed with surgery. ( Full Answer )
if a tumor has just been found that is about 1 1/2" in diameter projecting from the kidney is the prognosis favorable
Adenocarcinoma is a common type of cancer that arises from cells within glandular tissues. It can be a cancer found in lungs, colon, prostate, or other places.

Exactly what is an exophytic renal cyst? It is a cyst that grows from the inside-out from the organ in question, where there is a multiplying of these cysts within the kidney, which also leads to a build up of fluid. There are two kinds of cysts that can occur, one being a simple renal cyst, which i…s filled with liquid - with cysts with a thin wall lining itself with no problems from the first glance. The cyst only contains fluid upon observation, which is seen as either clear or yellow in color after it's been removed. It doesn't pose as a risk for future kidney cancer, so patients can breathe a sigh of relief knowing this detail. The second kind of kidney cyst that comes into the picture is a complex renal cyst which is the opposite of the previous kind, in that the cyst is irregular when the lining is observed along with its shape as well. The features of the cysts vary depending on the type it is, for example, if it is a cyst that has fine walls or those that are coarse and thick, it would mean that it is malignant in nature, thus posing as a risk for developing into kidney cancer.

there is an increase in increases the risk if someone in the family has kidney cancer....but its minimal.
Any cell in the body that mutates and loses it's normal 'lifetime' gene which controls it's time of death can be called cancerous if it becomes 'immortal'. Tumours grow at vastly different rates and there are hundreds of types of cancers.
Its actually called esophageal cancer, and it's its own type. Its cancer of the esophagus, and the main causes are smoking, drinking (a lot), and damage of the esophagus from acid reflux. Some symptoms are weight loss, painful swallowing, and coughing up blood. Hope this helps!
Yes anyone can get kidney cancer........Anyone can get any sort of cancer in their body, Its just that some peoples cancer runs in their family so their bodys are more prone to some different types of cancer!!
The first thing you should know is that the word 'cancer' actually refers to many different diseases. Cancer is a disease of the cells. Our bodies are made up of billions of cells - they're basically like building blocks. Cells are constantly dying and so our bodies are constantly producing new o…nes to replace them. This production of new cells that allows us to grow, to replace worn-out cells and to heal after an injury. For more straighforward facts about cancer visit related links below. ( Full Answer )
Breast cancer lung cancer and cirvical cancer and vaginal cancer . There are more than 200 different types of cancer. You can develop cancer in any body organ. There are over 60 different organs in the body where a cancer can develop. Each organ is made up of several different types of cells. For …example, there is usually a surface covering of skin or epithelial tissue. Underneath that there will be some connective tissue, often containing gland cells. Underneath that there is often a layer of muscle tissue and so on. Each type of tissue is made up of specific types of cells. Cancer can develop from almost any type of cell in the body. So there is usually more than one type of cancer that can develop in any one part of the body. Often though, one type of cancer will be much more common in a particular organ. For example, there are lining cells called squamous cells and gland cells called adenomatous cells in the lungs. So you can have squamous cell cancer of the lung and also adenocarcinoma of the lung. Treatment is worked out depending on the type of cancer. So if you are looking for information about treating your type of cancer it is important to know. ( Full Answer )
The only sure way to know is for her to go to a doctor tell the doctor her symptoms and then the doctor will better know how to proceed.
You can but it would be pointless because it would have already spread around the body. Please ask your doctor or a kidney specialist for advice about this. Assuming the cancer is only in the kidney and has not spread further, a kidney transplant can be done. The anti-rejection drugs the person …would need to take after transplant may have the effect of increasing the rate of growth of any cancers in the person's body so it is likely that the person would need to wait for some time to ensure the cancer has not spread before having a transplant and taking anti-rejection drugs.

If a patient has symptoms that suggest kidney cancer, the doctormay perform one or more of the following procedures: Physical exam: The doctor checks for physical signs like, fever and high bloodpressure. The doctor also feels the abdomen and side for tumors. Urine tests: Urine is checked and …analyzed for, any signs of kidney diseases Blood tests: A high level of creatinine in bloof may mean the kidneys are not inthe best of their health. Intravenous pyelogram (IVP): The doctor injects dye into a vein in the arm. The dye collects inthe kidneys. and is show up on x-rays. A series of x-rays thentracks the dye as it moves through the kidneys to the ureters andbladder. The x-rays can show a kidney tumor or other problems. CT scan (CAT scan): A CT Scan shows any abnormality in the kidneys. Ultrasound test: Ultrasound tests sometimes show a solid tumor or cyst in thekidneys. Biopsy: A biopsy is the removal of tissue to look for cancer cells. Thedoctor inserts a thin needle through the skin into the kidney toremove a small amount of tissue and a microscope to look for cancercells in the tissue. ( Full Answer )
having cancer depends on a number of "factors" or "causes" to tell the truth, anyone can have cancer. It can be genetic predisposition or exposure to potential carcinogens which can be acute or chronic. there are hundreds of different carcinogens so im not going to include them here.
Metastatic cancer is not a type of cancer, it is a stage of the disease, a late stage. Most cancer types can form new tumours in the body, like a weed sends its seeds in the wind to sprout into more weeds. The new tumours are called "metastases". Metastatic cancer is cancer that has already started …this seeding-out process. The first place where cancer metastasizes is in the lymph nodes. Later, it can go to the liver, the lungs, the bones, in fact just about anywhere. For a person with cancer, knowing if there are metastases or not is very important because it is a sign that the cancer is aggressive. Cancer without metastases is often curable but metastatic cancer is usually not curable. ( Full Answer )
The exact cause of kidney cancer is not known, so it is not possible to prevent all cases. However, because a strong association between kidney cancer and tobacco has been shown, avoiding tobacco is the best way to lower one's risk.
Because kidney cancer is often caught early and sometimes progresses slowly, the chances of a surgical cure are good. Length of survival depends on the size of the original tumor, the aggressiveness of the specific cells making up the tumor.
men seem to have a greater risk than women of contracting the disease; the male:female ratio in the United States and Canada is 3:2 as of the early 2000s. There is a strong association between cigarette smoking and kidney cancer.

It can be very common as it is an extension to the original (primary) tumour.
There are many causes for kidney cancer. They include, age, sex, hypertension, smoking, obesity, genetics, exposure to certain chemicals and even kidney transplant patients are at higher risk for this disease.
Metastatic kidney cancer occurs when cancer has spread from the kidney into the skeleton. The most common symptom is pain, that gets progressively worse as the tumors establish themselves in the bone.
According to the Kidney Cancer Association, recommended drugs for treating kidney cancer include Nexavar, Sutent, Torisel, Afinitor, Votrient, Inlyta, Avastin, and Proleukin. Another form of treatment that can be used is radiation therapy.
The most common symptoms of kidney cancer include sudden, rapid weight loss, high blood pressure, swelling of the legs and ankles, chronic fatigue, fever, pain in the side and lower back, blood in the urine, and an abdominal lump.
Kidney Cancer actually has 5 different stages in which the cancer develops! There is many different outcomes that will come of these stages. The name for all the stages though is, called AJCC Staging System.
depending on the stage within the first 5 years there is a 90-95% survival rate as long as the tumor if there is one is less than 4cm large. hope this answer helped!
Cancer is a very difficult topic. Each case is different and should always been consulted with a professional. The average is 5 year survival rate. Again each case is unique as is each cancer. Always seek help.
