Is Having Cancer On Your Kidney Bad?

Postby taji93 » Mon Feb 02, 2015 9:35 pm

If the kidney cancer is caught relatively early there's often a good prognosis. Unortunately it is a cancer that is often hard to detect until it is fairly well advanced/spread beyond the kidney.

Quite a few folks don't discover they have kidney cancer until they have tumors/neoplasms found in their lungs/bones/brain...after it has already spread from the kidney.
One might have a mass in one's kidney for years without any overt symptoms. The most common form of kidney cancer is renal cell carcinoma - RCC - but there are other rarer froms that behave a bit differently...

It's not good to have kidney cancer; it can,however, be treated well if it is caught early.
