What type of cancer is Kidney cancer?
- About 90% of kidney cancers are renal cell cancers (RCC). They are sometimes called renal adenocarcinoma. There are different subtypes of renal cell cancer which can be identified by looking at the cells under a microscope.
- There is a rarer type of kidney cancer, known as transitional cell cancer (TCC), which starts in the cells lining the central area of the kidney (the renal pelvis).

Answer . The biggest question would have to be what can "you" do to help fight the cancer. Being condfident is actually a good way to fight diseases.

What medical treatements are available? Ask him for details but always do your own research (the web is a great internet, there is more information online than anywhere).

Breast cancer lung cancer and cirvical cancer and vaginal cancer . There are more than 200 different types of cancer. You can develop cancer in any body organ. There are ove…r 60 different organs in the body where a cancer can develop. Each organ is made up of several different types of cells. For example, there is usually a surface covering of skin or epithelial tissue. Underneath that there will be some connective tissue, often containing gland cells. Underneath that there is often a layer of muscle tissue and so on. Each type of tissue is made up of specific types of cells. Cancer can develop from almost any type of cell in the body. So there is usually more than one type of cancer that can develop in any one part of the body. Often though, one type of cancer will be much more common in a particular organ. For example, there are lining cells called squamous cells and gland cells called adenomatous cells in the lungs. So you can have squamous cell cancer of the lung and also adenocarcinoma of the lung. Treatment is worked out depending on the type of cancer. So if you are looking for information about treating your type of cancer it is important to know.
the patient will die due to cancer spread
You can but it would be pointless because it would have already spread around the body. Please ask your doctor or a kidney specialist for advice about this. Assuming the c…ancer is only in the kidney and has not spread further, a kidney transplant can be done. The anti-rejection drugs the person would need to take after transplant may have the effect of increasing the rate of growth of any cancers in the person's body so it is likely that the person would need to wait for some time to ensure the cancer has not spread before having a transplant and taking anti-rejection drugs.

Metastatic cancer is not a type of cancer, it is a stage of the disease, a late stage. Most cancer types can form new tumours in the body, like a weed sends its seeds in the w…ind to sprout into more weeds. The new tumours are called "metastases". Metastatic cancer is cancer that has already started this seeding-out process. The first place where cancer metastasizes is in the lymph nodes. Later, it can go to the liver, the lungs, the bones, in fact just about anywhere. For a person with cancer, knowing if there are metastases or not is very important because it is a sign that the cancer is aggressive. Cancer without metastases is often curable but metastatic cancer is usually not curable.
