Advanced Treatment for Kidney Cancer
Your kidneys are two fist-sized organs located on the left and right sides of your spine and behind your abdominal organs. The most common type of kidney cancer is known as renal cell carcinoma. Adults and children can have kidney cancer. The most common symptoms are:
- Blood in urine
- Unrelenting back pain below the ribs
- Unexplained weight loss
- Intermittent fever
- Unexplained fatigue
Having one or more of those common symptoms does not necessarily mean you have kidney cancer. They may symptoms of some other problem.
Better technology detects more kidney cancers
Thanks to modern imaging technology, more kidney cancers are being discovered earlier, including many that are purely by accident. The latest CT (computed tomography) scans are incredibly detailed and they are exposing more kidney cancers.
If you have any of the symptoms listed above – or any other persistent symptoms that concern you – talk to a specialist at Orange County Urology Associates. We’ll help you determine the best possible treatment for you.
