Kidney cancer in Turkey price & reviews

What is Kidney Cancer?

We can consider kidney cancer in Turkey as one of the most widespread cancers. Adults between the ages of 60 and 70 are generally more concerned with this type of cancer. The prevalence (number of people affected by a given disease) is low among individuals under the age of 50.

Cancer can be treated, if it is taken care of quickly. However, if the diagnosis is late and the cancer has spread beyond the renal system, the treatment of the cancer becomes tougher.

What are the Different Diseases?

Hydronephrosis

This is the most frequent type of kidney cancer in adults (85% of kidney cancers). This kind of kidney cancer results in the development of cancer cells in the renal tubules which are small channels inside the nephrons that filter blood and make urine.

Transitional cell carcinoma

It accounts for nearly 8% of kidney cancer cases. It is a development of cancer cells in the pelvis (central part of the kidney where urine is collected before it arrives in the ureter, then into the bladder).

Wilms' tumor

Young individuals and children are more likely to be concerned with this sort of kidney cancer.

What are the Reasons that may lead to this Illness?

The specific basis of kidney cancer cannot be determined. However, risk factors have been identified. These include:

  • Obesity.
  • Tobacco consumption.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Family history of kidney cancer.
  • Genetic factors, such as Von Hippel-Lindau disease.
  • Treatment of kidney failure through dialysis.

How to Prevent it?

Preventing kidney cancer requires a healthy lifestyle that entails a healthy diet that reduces the risk of overweight and obesity, excludes smoking, and maintains blood pressure.

Symptoms of Renal Cancer

In many instances of kidney cancer, the patient has no signs. The diagnosis is made in the context of a medical examination for other reasons.

However, if symptoms occur, they are the following:

  • Blood in the urine.
  • Persistent pain in the lower back.
  • The appearance of nodules/swelling on one of the two sides of the back.
  • Chronic fatigue.
  • Loss of appetite and weight loss.
  • Persistent high blood pressure.
  • Night sweats.
  • Swelling of the testicular veins in men.
  • Coughing up blood.

Some of these clinical signs may appear once the cancer is at a very advanced stage or has spread to other parts of the body.

What is the Survival Rate?

Survival relies on many factors but the size of the tumor is particularly critical. If the tumor is less than 7 cm, the 5-year survival rate is very good, reaching 90%;

Above 7 cm but still limited to the kidney, it falls to 65%; in case of metastases, survival depends on the extent of disease extension and response to treatments.

How can be Treated?

Kidney cancer is most often treated by surgery when it is localized or locally advanced. When cancer has metastasized, treatment is based on drugs such as “targeted therapies” (“monoclonal antibodies”) and immunotherapy, with or without surgery.

Chemotherapy is not utilized and radiotherapy is rarely used due to the fact that kidney cancer cells are generally resistant to these treatments.
