Kidney Cancer

Kidneys are part of your urinary system. This system filters waste products out of the blood and makes urine. The kidneys are two bean shaped organs, each about the same size as a fist. They are near the middle of your back, one on either side of your spine. Inside the kidney tiny networks of tubes called nephrons filter the blood. As blood passes through the nephrons all unwanted waste is taken away. Chemicals that your body needs are kept or returned to the bloodstream. About 90% of kidney cancers (9 out of 10) are renal cell cancers. Renal cancer usually only affects one kidney. Kidney cancer becomes more likely as you age. Risk factors include smoking, having certain genetic conditions, and misusing pain medicines for a long time. Treatment depends on your age, your overall health and how advanced the cancer is. It might include surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation, biologic, or targeted therapies. Biologic therapy boosts your body's own ability to fight cancer. Targeted therapy uses substances that attack cancer cells without harming normal.
