New Treatment Destroys Kidney Tumors Without Side Effects
Date:7/14/2011

SARASOTA, Fla., July 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Elliot Hatton was on a cruise celebrating his 25th wedding anniversary when he noticed blood in his urine.  He mentioned it to his wife, but since it didn't happen again, he ignored it.  Two months later, his urine turned rust colored, and the veins around his testicles were swollen.  His physician ordered tests, and Elliot was one of the 61,000 Americans diagnosed with kidney cancer annually.  And according to TMD Limited, a medical tourism company, Hatton joined an even larger group  - he became one of half a million US citizens who go out of the country each year for medical treatment.

At 55, Hatton had several risk factors: he was a smoker, overweight and  had high blood pressure.  Other risk factors include a family history of kidney cancer and the Von-Hipbel-Lindau (VHL) Syndrome, a hereditary disease affecting the VHL gene.  Men are diagnosed with kidney cancer twice as often as women, usually after age 50.

In addition to bloody urine, other symptoms include anemia, pain or a lump or mass in the side, back or abdomen, unexplained weight loss, fever and persistent exhaustion.  In some cases there are no symptoms.

Kidneys are the size of a fist.  Urine collects in the hollow space in the middle of each kidney, then passes from the pelvis into the bladder through a long tube called the ureter, then leaves the body through a short tube called the urethra.  Kidneys also make substances to help control blood pressure and to make red blood cells.

When normal cell growth goes awry, and damaged cells don't die off the way they should, the buildup of extra cells form a tumor.  In renal cell carcinoma (kidney cancer), tumors can form is the very small tubes in the kidney that filter blood and remove waste products, or in the center of the kidney, where urine collects.  Pieces of the tumors can break off and spread through the lymp
