Adenocarcinoma of the kidney
Adenocarcinoma of the kidney (renal cell carcinoma) is a malignant fast-growing tumor. Most often, it develops from the tubular epithelium and is an elastic knot. It appears in adults and children, only in men it occurs 2 times more often than in women.
The reasons that can provoke the development of neoplasms include:
- inherited diseases (papillary renal cell carcinoma, leiomyomatosis, etc.);
- long-term use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs;
- bad habits.
Often kidney cancer occurs in humans having cystic disease of these organs. Scientists are also working to study the possibility of influencing the development of onco harmful substances (lead, benzidine), but so far the research results do not give an unambiguous answer.
The insidiousness of kidney cancer lies in the fact that in the early stages the disease proceeds practically asymptomatic. Stage 1 renal carcinoma is almost invisible to patients. Later, a person may complain of pain in the side of varying intensity, the appearance of blood in the urine, and general weakness.
All malignant neoplasms of the kidneys are subdivided according to the degree of differentiation. So, highly differentiated adenocarcinoma is considered the easiest, since it develops at a slow pace, rarely spreads metastases, more malignant is a moderate degree. Poorly differentiated is the most dangerous, as its cells grow rapidly.
Renal cell carcinoma has different histological types. It can be clear cell carcinoma of the kidney, papillary, sarcoma-like, or common. Less often (in 3-5% of cases) there is chromophobic renal carcinoma, which has low activity, so it is quite successfully treated with timely treatment.
In addition, there are 4 main stages of the development of the disease:
- Stage 1 - the tumor is limited to the kidney;
- Stage 2 - the neoplasm spreads to the adrenal glands and others adjacent tissues;
- Stage 3 - massive tumor spread;
- Stage 4 - adenocarcinoma with a large area of spread and distant metastases.
To determine exactly what type of malignant renal tumor develops in a patient, various types of diagnostics help: ultrasound, MRI, computed tomography, laboratory tests, biopsy with a collection of tumor tissue for further research. The sooner the diagnosis is made, the more chances for a positive outcome of treatment are, therefore it is very important to take preventive measures on time: lead a healthy lifestyle, periodically do an ultrasound scan.
Treatment of renal cell carcinoma is most often reduced to a combined method, including radical surgery and radiation therapy. If necessary, additional procedures are connected, such as chemotherapy (sometimes used as an independent type of treatment if surgery is contraindicated for the patient), immunotherapy, taking hormonal drugs.
