Which is the best treatment for renal cancer

Update Date: Source: Network


My father-in-law got kidney cancer. Fortunately, it was early. The doctor suggested surgery. After surgery, the patient's condition was effectively controlled. Now it is much better and is in the recovery period. Let me tell you what is the best way to treat renal cancer.

Which is the best treatment for renal cancer

First of all, renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a malignant tumor originated from the renal parenchyma and urinary tubular epithelial system, which is also called renal adenocarcinoma. About the treatment of renal cancer, people think of the most means may be chemoradiotherapy, surgery and immunotherapy and so on. However, for renal cell carcinoma, these treatments have limitations in varying degrees.

Second, chemoradiotherapy for renal cell carcinoma is very low sensitivity to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, the efficiency is only 10%. Moreover, chemotherapy itself is easy to produce drug resistance, and the specificity is also relatively poor. Immunotherapy for kidney cancer, doctors will also use drugs such as interferon and interleukin. Among them, interleukin is likely to cure renal cancer, but its toxic reaction is too large. Whether interferon can improve the life span of patients is still uncertain.   

Third, for metastatic renal cell carcinoma, the five-year survival rate of distant metastasis is generally about 5%, which is very low. At present, the treatment of renal cancer, in addition to surgery, there is no particularly good way. Surgery is best not only to cut off the kidney tumor, but also to cut off the metastatic lesions. For some patients with renal cancer, although the effect is better after surgery, there are still 1 / 3 people who will have metastasis after surgery. Therefore, the treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma often requires more thorough and comprehensive.   

matters needing attention

Kidney cancer patients should eat more fresh vegetables, fruits, whole wheat food and beans. If the kidney function is normal, should eat more vegetables, fruits, in order to provide sufficient vitamins. If the patient has renal insufficiency, especially when the daily urine volume is less than 500 ml, they should selectively eat vegetables and fruits. Because vegetables, fruits are generally rich in potassium, and kidney disease patients with oliguria, serum potassium levels are increased. The fruits with high potassium content are watermelon, banana, pineapple, mango, jujube, muskmelon, etc.; the vegetables with high potassium content are amaranth, spinach, celery, carrot, bamboo shoot, potato, etc.
