Treatments of Kidney Cancer
Kidney Cancer has been treated in many different ways. In recent years, systemic therapy, surgery or immunotherapy are the main treatments.
- Systemic Therapy
- Systemic therapy is the used of drugs or treatments that effect the entire body. These drugs are targeting cancer cells that have spread throughout the body. Types of systemic therapy include chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and immunotherapy.
- Immunotherapy is a specific type of systemic therapy that involves strengthening your immune system. In order for you body to fight back the spread of cancer in its advanced stages, immunotherapy gives your immune system a fighting chance.
- Hopefully, you and your doctor are able to discover Kidney Cancer in its most early stages. If so, then surgery will be the targeted treatment. There are other advanced surgeries that would target multiple areas affected by the disease. However, these methods are usually discussed and unless an emergency surgery is necessary, other systemic therapy methods will be taken.
