Kidney Cancer

Kidney cancer (also called renal adenocarcinoma or renal cell cancer) is a disease in which cancer cells are found within the lining of tubules in the kidney. We have two kidneys, behind the peritoneum one on each side of the spinal cord. Small tubules in the kidneys purify the blood. Unabsorbed products are formed as urine. The urine then passes in to the urinary bladder through long tubes called ureter one coming from each kidney and joining the bladder. The urine is stored in bladder until it leaves the body through urethra. Kidney cancer perhaps remains clinically occult for most of its course. Immunomodulatory agents and targeted therapy are the standard care measures in metastatic disease patients. The most common malignant disease affecting kidney is kidney cancer. One of the most common causes for kidney cancer is smoking.
