Modern treatment for Kidney Cancer

Felllow in Endourology, MCh Urology, MRCS, MS, MBBS
Urologist,
What is kidney cancer?
Kidney cancer (renal cancer or renal cell carcinoma) is one of the ten most common cancers in both men and women.
It occurs when the cells in kidney grow uncontrollably and start invading surrounding tissues (i. E, undergoes malignant change). The risk factors are age > 40 years, smoking, obesity, long term dialysis, certain genetic conditions, family history, high blood pressure and male gender. However, it can occur to anybody.

What are the symptoms of kidney cancer?
1. Blood in urine
2. Pain or lump in side of upper abdomen
3. Weight loss or loss of appetite
4. Long term fever
However, many of kidney cancers are detected on routine ultrasonograms done for other purposes. Thus, regular ultrasonogram testing can pick up these tumors very early.

What are the diagnostic tests?
Contrast enhanced computed tomography (ct scan) of abdomen is the current gold-standard test to diagnose kidney tumors and evaluate for local spread. Chest x-ray or ct chest helps in diagnosing spread to lungs. Some blood tests will help to evaluate function of kidney and general health condition.

What are the best treatment modalities?
Surgical removal is the best treatment for kidney cancer. Chemotherapy or radiation therapy does not act on kidney cancer and hence are not used.
If the size is small, only the tumor is removed and rest of kidney can be preserved (nephron sparing surgery or partial nephrectomy).
For large tumors, the whole kidney, surrounding tissues and lymph nodes are removed totally (radical nephrectomy).
Both these surgeries can be done through keyholes (laparoscopy), thus reducing the pain and leading to faster recovery.
If the tumor has spread all over the body, then targeted therapy is given using specific drugs (usually in the form of tablets) like pazopanib, sunitinib, sorafenib etc.

How to follow-up after treatment?
Regular check up using ultrasonogram, ct scan, chest x-ray, renal function tests, liver function tests are needed to maintain good health.

Take home message:
Regular ultrasonograms after the age of 40 years (at least annually) can help in diagnosing these tumors and curing them 100%.

My urine is very yellow and I have also some pain in abdomen what can I do?

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), MS - Urology, MBBS
Urologist,
Dear, , if you do not have any other symptoms and if you are not taking any medicines then you are passing very concentrated urine suggesting you body needs more fluids so increase your fluid intake to the extent urine becomes watery white. If still urine is dark yellow then you need urine test to rule out jaundice.

That suggests you are having obstruction. Start taking 2-3 litres of water daily, cap urimax 0. 4mg daily. If ultrasound shows obstruction get the stone removed.

I do't have any other ailment except hypertension for which I take regularly doctor's prescribed medicine. Thanking you in advance for your valued advice.

Hello sir. Sorry regarding your problem but I strongly advice you to go for ultrasonography of your pelvis done to see for prostate gland. Becoz enlargement of prostate (benign hpertrophy of prostate) is common in old age and it might lead to increased frequency of urine in night (nocturia). If your report comes out to be normal then you might try with reducing content of drinking water at night. Take care.

Hi dear...gas problem is quiet a prevalent problem in our country because of our food habits. Avoid eating very fried oily spicy foods...add fibre rich foods like salads, green veg, fruits, wheat rotis etc. Also dont remain empty stomach for prolonged periods. eat something every 2-3 hrs...and walk every 1-2 hrs...dont keep sitting.

I think you should go for cystoscopy or tranrectal usg. Consult a urologist and if he finds any abnormality he can suggest you biopsy. But these conditions can better be understand by a urologist.

Considering you taking hostel food, your weight is reasonably ok. But why are you skipping the meals whole day, it is not right. Due to your young age you are able to withstand the lack of food but in future it will cause lot of health problems as the age advances. So take regular and timely food. Regarding the cloudy urine, it could be because of your fasting, or due to lack of sufficient water in the body. If it is during your period it could be because of some infection which can also give smell. So to over come that take plenty of water i. E. 2.5 to 3 liters of water in a day, wash your private parts every time after passing urine. Avoid spicy food. These are the some of the measures you need to follow for relief.

Stone size of less than 5mm usually treated conservatively. 1. You need to drink plenty of water. 2. If pain occurs you can take analgesics. 3. Do repeat scan.

Homoeopathic treatment prevents further enlargement of prostate by medicines without surgery. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc.
