Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma Therapeutics
It is also called renal cell cancer or renal cell adenocarcinoma, is a common type of kidney cancer. About 90% of all kidney cancers are renal cell carcinomas. RCC usually begins as a tumour growing in one of your kidneys. It can also develop in both kidneys. Cancerous tumour is discovered in one of your kidneys, the usual treatment is to remove part or the entire affected kidney surgically. If the tumour is left, it’s more likely that the cancer will spread to either your lymph nodes or other organs. The spread of cancer is called metastasis. In the case of RCC, the tumour can invade a large vein leading out of the kidney. It can also spread to the lymph system and other organs (the lungs are especially vulnerable).
