Kidney cancer means any cancer that begins in the kidney. Many people who don’t know should be knowing that older age, obesity, smoking, and high blood pressure are the most important known risk factors behind renal cancer.

Another contributing factor to Kidney cancer is that people wait too long to seek medical attention for their symptoms.

But the main problem is most people suffer from unusual symptoms which are not always obvious to the deadly disease.

Like suffering from night sweating could be an early sign increasing your risk of the deadly disease.

The symptoms can also be caused by a variety of other common conditions.

When kidney cancer does cause symptoms, these may include:

Blood in your urine (this is the most common symptom)

A dull pain in your side between your upper abdomen and back

A high temperature, night sweats and feeling very tired

Losing weight for no obvious reason

A lump in the tummy area, side or back.

A metallic taste can also indicate a serious illness, such as kidney or liver problems, but these reasons are not common and usually are accompanied by other symptoms, according to Family medicine physician Michael Rabovsky, MD.

There are other symptoms of the condition although some can be mistaken for urinary tract infections, or kidney stones.

These can include extreme tiredness, loss of appetite and persistent high blood pressure.  

Night sweats can also be an indicator of the condition.

Some people suffer bone pain, men can find the veins in their testicles swell up and the disease can trigger swollen glands in the neck.

If your sleeping habits, one of the most unnoticed signs, have changed, this could be an early warning sign of kidney cancer as well.

People who believe could have symptoms of kidney cancer should see their GP.
