• Emphasizing Early Detection, Prevention, and Advanced Treatments for Renal Cell Carcinoma

Staff Reporter : Kolkata, 19th.June, 2024.  In recognition of World Kidney Cancer Day, Narayana Hospital, Howrah, and NH RN Tagore Hospital, Mukundapur, are joining the global community to raise awareness about kidney cancer, emphasizing the importance of early detection, prevention, and advanced treatment options.

Kidney cancer, also known as renal cell carcinoma, affects thousands of individuals worldwide each year. Early detection and awareness play crucial roles in improving treatment outcomes and survival rates.

*Dr. Satyadip Mukherjee, Senior consultant, Department of Uro oncology & Robotic surgery*, NH Kolkata emphasized that many kidney tumors are incidentally detected during unrelated tests. Early detection is crucial for a full cure, with surgery as the primary treatment. Localized kidney cancer can be effectively managed with surgery. Robotic surgery has revolutionized kidney tumor treatment, offering minimally invasive (keyhole) procedures that result in less bleeding, reduced pain, and quicker recovery. The high precision of robotic surgery allows for partial nephrectomy, which removes tumors while preserving kidney function. This approach is especially effective if the tumor is diagnosed early. Timely diagnosis and intervention significantly improve the chances of curing kidney cancer and maintaining the patient’s quality of life.

World Kidney Cancer Day aims to educate the public about kidney cancer, its risk factors, and the importance of early diagnosis. By increasing awareness, we can encourage individuals to seek medical advice promptly, leading to better prognosis and improved quality of life for patients.

Maintaining regular medical check-ups and screenings, especially for those with a family history of kidney cancer or other risk factors, is vital for early detection. Adopting a healthy lifestyle through balanced nutrition, regular exercise, and avoiding tobacco can significantly reduce the risk of developing kidney cancer. Additionally, monitoring and managing known risk factors such as high blood pressure, obesity, and exposure to harmful substances under medical guidance is crucial for prevention.

Modern medical advancements have significantly improved the treatment landscape for kidney cancer. Minimally invasive surgical techniques, targeted therapies, and immunotherapies are now available, offering new hope and improved outcomes for patients.

Narayana Health is dedicated to improving patient outcomes through comprehensive care, advanced research, and a commitment to public health education. On this World Kidney Cancer Day, we urge everyone to take proactive steps towards a healthier future.
