The most common kind of kidney cancer found in adults is called renal cell carcinoma. Here’s everything you need to know about Kidney cancer.

Kidney:

Kidney is the organ responsible for filtering blood from extra water, salt and other waste products in the human body. These bean-shaped organs are also responsible in ensuring that the blood pressure levels, acid-base balance and electrolyte levels are in control.

Kidney Cancer:

Cancer in the kidney develops when the cells in the kidney grow without control. Such cells might spread to the liver, bones and lungs and form new tumors. Kidney cancer is usually found in people over the age of 45.

Risk Factors:

The following are the risk factors associated with kidney cancer:

1. Older Age: The risk of kidney cancer increases for those aged above 45 years.

2. Smoking: People who smoke quite often are at greater risk to develop kidney cancer. Such risk also decreases as you quit smoking.

3. High Blood Pressure: People having high blood pressure or hypertension is likely at risk to develop kidney cancer.

4. Obesity: People who are obese or are overweight have a greater chance of developing kidney cancer when compared to those who have average weight.

5. Workplace Environment: Exposure to hazardous elements in the workplace such as herbicides, cadmium, asbestos and certain organic solvents also increases the risk of kidney cancer.

6. Race: African Americans, American Indians or natives of Alaska are at a higher risk in comparison to Caucasians.

Prevention Tips:

Incorporating a healthy lifestyle can reduce the chances of developing kidney cancer. Regular physical activity to maintain a healthy weight combined with a healthy diet is the key.

Healthy Diet:

Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables as well as a low-fat, high-fiber diet keeps you healthy. Keeps tabs on the amount of salt you intake, as increase in salt consumption can raise blood pressure levels. Also avoid foods rich in saturated fat as they can increase cholesterol levels. Such foods include sausages, butter, ghee, biscuits & cakes, hard cheese, cream and more.

According to research, eating plenty of oily fish can reduce the risk of kidney cancer. Some of them include salmon, herring, trout, sardines and mackerel. Fish rich in Vitamin D also helps reduce risks of certain cancers.

Quit Smoking:

Smoking is one of the most effective ways of preventing cancer of the kidney and other kinds of cancers as well. Giving up on smoking can also prevent strokes and heart attack.

Exercise:

Doing a minimum of 150 minutes moderate-aerobic activity such as brisk walking, cycling, swimming and running reduces the risk and keep you fit.

Put an end to unhealthy habits and embrace measures that keep you healthy and secured from illnesses.
