Kidney Cancer

Kidney Cancer

Your kidneys are the organs that are responsible for filtering out the waste, toxins, and excess water present in your body. To live a healthy and fulfilling life, you should prioritise maintaining the health of your kidneys and look out for the various problems and conditions that can affect your kidneys.
Kidney cancer is by far one of the most critical and dangerous conditions that can affect your body. Kidney cancer occurs when there is an abnormal growth of cells in your kidney tissue, and like all forms of cancer, kidney cancer begins when cells begin growing and dividing out of control.
Regal Hospital, the top multispeciality hospital in Bangalore, specialises in urology. We are readily equipped with world-class amenities and the latest advanced technological equipment to cater to all aspects of your kidney health with ease and expertise. At Regal Hospital, we specialise in treating kidney and prostate cancer through advanced surgical treatments and by encouraging early detection and preventive measures against kidney cancer.

Types of kidney cancer

These are the forms of cancer that occur within your kidneys:
  • Renal cell carcinoma: This is the most common form of kidney cancer diagnosis, accounting for 85% of all kidney cancer diagnoses. It usually begins as a small tumour in one kidney and eventually develops in both kidneys.
  • Transitional cell cancer: This type of cancer usually starts as cancerous growth in the area that connects your ureter to the main parts of your kidney; it can also occur in your uterus or bladder.
  • Renal Sarcoma: This is a rare but malignant form of cancer that begins in the connective tissues of your kidneys, and if not treated on time, it can spread to your nearby tissues and bones.
  • Wilms tumour: This is the most commonly occurring cancer in children, and it accounts for 5% of kidney cancer diagnoses.
