If you have been diagnosed with a kidney tumor, it's important to be treated as early as possible. This helps improve your chances for successful treatment. Most tumors of the kidney are malignant (cancer), but some are benign (not cancer). There is no imaging test that can tell if a kidney tumor is benign or cancerous.
Kidney Cancer Diagnosis
To make a final diagnosis of kidney tumor, your need take one or more tests as follows:
● blood tests
● urine tests
● intravenous pyelogram
● CT scan
● Renal arteriogram
● Magnetic resonance imaging, MRI as the short name
Unlike other tumors, kidney tumor may sometime need patient to take renal biopsy so as to confirm the diagnosis. This method is virtually no risk of "spreading cancer". Our team of radiologists is highly experienced in safe biopsy methods.
If you dislike renal biopsy, we introduce other update examinations to help confirm the diagnosis, such as tests for α1-MG, β2MG, ECT, Cysc etc.
By far, it is not known exactly what causes kidney tumor. However, doctors find that some potential causes for your information.
According to the researchers, certain gene that speed up cell division and stop cells from dying when they are supposed to are called oncogenes. Others that slow down cell division, or cause cells to die at the right time, are called tumor suppressor genes.
If parents get kidney tumor, their children is more likely to be affected than others. For example, people with hereditary papillary renal cell carcinoma have inherited changes in the MET oncogene that cause it to be "turned on" all the time. This can lead to uncontrolled cell growth and makes the person more likely to develop papillary renal cell cancer.
Most DNA mutations related to kidney tumor, however, occur during a person's life rather than having been inherited. These acquired changes in oncogenes and/or tumor suppressor genes may result from factors such as exposure to cancer-causing chemicals (like those found in tobacco smoke), but in many cases what causes these changes is not known.
Kidney tumor usually rarely causes signs or symptoms in the early stages. As the kidney tumor develops into later stages, you may experience the following symptoms:
