kidney cancer

DESCRIPTION

Kidney cancer is about twice as common in men than women and the risk of developing kidney cancer is increased by smoking, obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes. There are different types of kidney cancer notably the most common one, the clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). 70-85% of kidney cancers are ccRCC and it has a high risk of metastasis (spreading to other sites in the body). Promising results regarding the role of radiolabeled PET tracers as an imaging modality for the evaluation of widespread disease and response to target and local therapies in patients with renal cancer have been observed.
