Diagnosing Kidney Cancer
Kidney cancer, also referred to as renal cancer, manifests itself through the uncontrollable growth of a tumor on a kidney after the affected cells become malignant. Kidney cancer is normally detected earlier than other forms of cancer before it spreads to neighboring organs. The ability to detect this condition in its early stages makes it easier to treat.
Although there are no scientifically established causes of kidney cancer, some lifestyle conditions are highly related to this ailment. Smoking is often related to this cancer; smokers are said to have twice the risk of contracting it than nonsmokers.
