Since last few decades millions of people get infected by kidney cancer. We all knows kidney one most important part of our body but still some time we careless about our kidney. Why need to care our kidney? The kidneys are paired organs, which have the production of urine as their primary function.
The kidneys bear out vital roles within the body include filtering blood and building hormones. These hormones regulate blood pressure, control calcium levels and help in the manufacture of red blood cells. Healthy kidneys go a long way to making a healthy body.
Some facts regarding kidney cancer
• Each year more than 32,000 Americans are diagnosed with cancer of the kidney, making it the 8th most common cancer among men and the 10th most common among women.
• Nearly 85% of those diagnosed with the disease have renal cell carcinomas, a form of cancer that forms in that part of the kidney that filters blood and produces urine.

Five types of standard treatment available for kidney cancer which mentioned below
Surgery: Surgery to treat kidney cancer is called nephrectomy. Depending on the tumor size, location and stage, the surgeon may choose to remove the entire kidney (radical nephrectomy) or just the portion affected by cancer (partial nephrectomy). If surgery is your best treatment option, your doctor will discuss the procedure with you.
Radiation Treatment: Radiation treatment uses high-energy X-rays or other types of radiation to kill cancer cells or keep them from growing. Radiation has a limited role in treating kidney cancer. Kidney tumors often do not shrink or stop growing when treated with radiation, so radiation as a frontline treatment is usually not advised. In some cases, radiation may be used to ease pain and other symptoms of advanced kidney cancer that has spread to bone or other areas of the body.
Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is usually not an effective treatment for kidney tumors, but is sometimes used to treat tumors that have spread to the lung, bones, brain or lymph nodes. In these cases, chemotherapy would be combined with surgery or another type of treatment.
Immunotherapy: Immunotherapy (sometimes called biologic therapy) is a treatment that uses the patient’s immune system to fight cancer. Substances made by the body or made in a laboratory are used to boost, direct, or restore the body’s natural defenses against cancer.
Targeted therapy: Targeted therapy uses drugs or other substances that can find and attack specific cancer cells without harming normal cells. Antiangiogenic agents are a type of targeted therapy that may be used to treat advanced kidney cancer. They keep blood vessels from forming in a tumor, causing the tumor to starve and stop growing or to shrink.
