Benefits of Radiation Therapy for Kidney Cancer
Radiation therapy is a proven treatment option with a low risk of complications
Understanding Kidney Cancer
Early detection and appropriate treatment can make a difference
Though kidney cancer usually does not have symptoms in its early stages, over time, as the tumor grows, more serious symptoms like blood in the urine or pain or a lump in the lower back may emerge. Kidney cancer is usually found by chance during an abdominal imaging test for other complaints.
Most people with kidney cancer are older. The average age of people when they are diagnosed is 64 with most people being diagnosed between ages 65 and 74. Kidney cancer is very uncommon in people younger than age 45.
For older patients who are not good candidates for surgery due to other health complications, radiation therapy is an excellent treatment option for kidney cancer.
Targeted Treatments To Fight Kidney Cancer
Precision and minimal invasiveness make radiation therapy an effective option
Radiation therapy uses sophisticated imaging and targeting technologies which allow the radiation oncologist to effectively destroy cancer cells in the kidney while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue
Radiation therapy can be customized to meet the unique needs of each patient, taking into account factors such as the size and location of the cancer, overall health, and previous treatments the patient may have undergone
Radiation therapy can also help alleviate symptoms associated with kidney cancer, such as pain and swelling, providing patients with improved quality of life and a more manageable daily routine
