RCC (renal cell carcinoma)
Renal cell carcinoma is cancer that occurs in the kidneys. It originates from the proximal convoluted tube, which is responsible for the primary transport of urine. This is a well-known ailment, as more than 90% of cancer cases in adults are due to CRC.
This is one of the most dangerous diseases that affect adults due to the body’s ability to hide symptoms very well. The most common symptoms are malaise, high blood pressure and fever, and weight loss. As it is clear that the above symptoms can be due to various reasons, people do not take them seriously. The most serious symptom when people seek medical attention is urine. So this disease can spread to a great extent without people being aware of its presence.
Since CRC is a kidney cancer, most of the causes are related to the lifestyle that affects the kidneys. Smoking and obesity are some of the main reasons behind the origins of CRC in a person.
Aside from lifestyle choices, occupational hazards also play a role in this. If a person is exposed to harmful chemicals like asbestos, lead, petrochemicals, and many more, due to their occupation, then they have a high probability of developing this disease. However, a contradiction has been found in the fact that people who consume alcohol in a moderate or controlled amount are more protected from developing this cancer.
After much research, it has been found that genetic reasons do not cause CRC. Parents with acquired kidney disease are not strictly responsible for their offspring developing CRC. More than 50% of CRC cases are due to lifestyle choices and the rest are due to occupational exposure to harmful chemicals and toxins.
Diagnosis of the disease
Another important aspect of CRC is a difficult diagnosis. As already mentioned, the more cancer spreads, the more difficult it becomes to cure. Now, detecting cancer at an early stage has also been found to be difficult. The safe shooting test is to observe any presence of mass or enlargement of a nearby organ, but that may be too late.
The most effective and commonly used methods for diagnosing renal cell carcinoma are computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound. It is necessary to have a proper diagnosis of this disease because renal cell carcinoma is not a single growth but a collection of different tumors. Therefore, it can spread rapidly and damage not only the kidneys, but also nearby organs.
Treat the disease with immunotherapy.
Chemotherapy is the most widely used treatment for cancer of any type, but it is common knowledge that it has a number of very serious side effects. Many people, especially older people, can have serious side effects when undergoing chemotherapy. Therefore, more importance is being given to immunotherapy to treat cancer.
The main effect of cancer growth is the regression of a person’s immune system. The best way to fight disease is by strengthening the body’s immune system. Immunotherapy focuses on this aspect and uses specific drugs to strengthen the immune system to resist the growth of cancer.
