What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope
What Is Kidney Cancer? Understand Your Disease
Carcinoma of the kidney is among the ten most common cancers in men and women. It also identifies as renal cancer, which occurs when cells in one or both kidneys grow out of control. The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs about the size of human fists. They are located behind the abdominal organs, with one kidney on each side of the spine. Any tumorous growth in these vital organs can prevent them from filtering blood to remove excess water, salt, and waste products through urination.
Kidney Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited
The different types of kidney cancer are:
Renal cell carcinoma
This common type of renal cancer makes up about 85 percent of diagnoses. It develops in the proximal renal tubules that comprise the kidney’s filtration system.
This cancer is also called transitional cell carcinoma and accounts for 10 to 15 percent of kidney cancers. It starts in the renal pelvis, the area of the kidney where urine accumulates before transferring to the bladder.
This uncommon form of kidney cancer develops in soft tissues or surrounding fats.
Wilms’ tumor is a childhood cancer that, in rare cases, occurs aggressively in adults.
In rare cases, lymphoma can appear as a lone tumor in the kidney and may include enlarged regional lymph nodes.
Kidney Cancer Symptoms
Typically, early kidney cancer does not show signs or symptoms. As cancer progresses, a patient may experience:
- Blood in the urine, which can appear red, pink, or brown
- Persistent pain in the back or side
- Loss of appetite
- Unexplained weight loss
- Fever, which usually comes and goes (intermittent)
- Unexplainable fatigue
Renal cancer that metastasizes (spreads) to other parts of the body may manifest in the following symptoms:
- Coughing with blood
- Shortness of breath
- Bone pain
Schedule an appointment with your doctor if you have any symptoms that worry you.
Kidney Cancer Risks Factors and Prevention
The causes of renal cell cancer are unclear, but there are several risk factors, including:
- Older age
- Use of tobacco products
- Unhealthy body weight or obesity
- High blood pressure
- Prolonged use of over-the-counter drugs and prescription drugs
- Advanced kidney disease or chronic kidney failure
- Being on long-term dialysis
- A family history of kidney cancer
- Exposure to chemicals like asbestos, benzene, and cadmium
- Certain genetic conditions, such as Hippel-Lindau disease, tuberous sclerosis complex, hereditary papillary renal cell carcinoma, Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome, or familial renal cancer
Having one or more of these risk factors does not mean you will get kidney cancer. You can also have none of them and still get the disease.
Taking proactive steps to improve your health may help reduce your risk of kidney cancer. This includes quitting smoking and maintaining a healthy weight. Controlling high blood pressure through lifestyle measures such as exercise and diet changes may also help. Some people may need medications to lower their blood pressure, so discuss your options with your doctor.
Detection and Diagnosis
To diagnose kidney cancer, your doctor will order one or more of the following tests:
- Medical history and physical exam
- Urine test
- Blood test
- Intravenous pyelogram (IVP)
- Computed tomography (CT) scan
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
- Renal arteriogram

1. What are the risks involved with alternative kidney cancer treatments?
On average, New Hope’s cancer treatments have lower risks than conventional treatments, which we combined together with holistic protocols to increase efficacy.
2. If I have one kidney fail and removed, can I live normally?
After a kidney is removed, the remaining bean-shaped organ takes over the work of both. Most patients with only one kidney have no long-term health problems. In fact, some individuals are born with only one kidney and experience no complications.
