What is Renal tumour?

The kidney is the most integral part of the body. In a renal tumour or renal cell carcinoma, the renal cells become cancerous and start changing. The healthy cells become replaced with the cancerous cells which cover the whole renal. It affects one or both of the child’s kidneys.

What is the exact cause of renal tumour in the kids?

  • It’s congenital.
  • Due to chromosomal changes in the kidney cells.
  • The hereditary factor- If the baby’ sibling has it then the baby too will have it.

How to recognise the symptoms of a renal tumour in my child?

It is best to watch out for signs like these in your kid:

  • The lump- It becomes most noticeable while bathing the baby or if the child takes bath on its own.
  • Belly pain- The belly pain comes and goes without any reason in the kids.
  • If the child always suffers from fevers.
  • The presence of the urine in the pee.

What is the diagnosis for a renal tumour?

We use several techniques for its diagnostics and technology has come to our aid. The diagnosis helps us in identifying the stage of renal tumour in the child. Some method employed by us for diagnostics are:

Kidney biopsy- It’s the most advanced way to diagnose cancerous cells by the technicians in the Laboratory. Small kidney tissue is cut and sent for the test in the laboratory where special chemicals are used to trace the cancerous cells.

Staging test- This is the next stage after the cancerous tumour is located in the renal. This test helps to determine the stage at which cancer and its area of spread. It is calculated through stages like Stage 1 to stage 4.

How is a renal tumour in my kid treated?

The type of treatment we offer is parallel to the stage of renal tumour and its exposure to other organs. Most of the time we use surgical and non-surgical methods to heal the renal tumour in the child.

Non-surgical treatment.

This is the aptest method when the tumour is small in size and hasn’t spread outside the organ. We use methods like:

Cryoablation: Here the cold gas-filled hollow tube is inserted into the renal tumour. This is done with the help of an MRI scan on the screen and it freezes the cancerous cells instantly.

Immunotherapy- The cancer cells cause the kidney cells to be dormant. In immunotherapy, the cancer cells stop making proteins which prohibits the immune from attacking the cancerous cells. After this treatment, the immune system becomes active again and attacks the cancer cells in the kidney.

These will work if the tumour is curable but if a tumour is large and spread over a large area. We suggest surgical treatment:

Partial Nephrectomy- In Partial nephrectomy, only the cancer cells are destroyed and the rest of the child’s kidney remains intact. It is performed through laparoscopic surgery.

  • A small incision is made in the abdomen through which a small laparoscopic tube with a camera and tools are inserted in the kidney. The surgeon removes the tumour as well as other healthy tissues surrounding the tumour.

Complete Nephrectomy- This is done when one kidney is fully damaged and gets removed. The entire kidney is removed along with the lymph nodes and their surrounding structure. This removes the tumour but the child has to live only on one kidney.
