Heavy Smoking can Lead to Kidney Cancer
On Sunday, May 15, Robert Predit a researcher found in his new study that Smoking can increase the risk of Kidney Cancer.This study was conducted in the Duke University Medical Center. The study followed 845 patients who had the surgery for the Kidney Cancer or Renal Cell Carcinoma between the years 2000-2009.
These findings were presented in the on Sunday in a Special Press Conference at the American Urological Association’s Annual Meeting in Washington D.C.The researchers found that the current or the formers smokers had more risk of Cancers as compare to the nonsmokers.The researchers found that heavy smoking is linked to the Renal Cell Carcinoma. The people who had left smoking their risk for diseases is decreased to almost 9%.
Another study presented at the Conference stated that in United States the rates of Bladder Cancer don’t reduce even with the decreased rates of Smoking.The researchers studied a National Database and they have found that the rate of Kidney Cancer is decreased with lowering the consumption of Cigarettes between the years 1973- 2007, but at the same time they have found that no decline is seen in the rate of Bladder Cancer with the decreased rate of Cigarette consumption.
The researchers at the State University of New York, Medical University in Syracuse from American Urological Association said in a new release that the rate of Bladder Cancer is reduced due to decline in Smoking, but there are number of other factors that are increasing the risk of Bladder Cancer for decades. This is the reason due to which the decline in the Bladder Cancer with the less Cigarette’s consumption is ignored.Dr. Toby Kohler in his new release said that these 2 studies have shed light on the role of Smoking for the 2 important Urologic Cancers.Kohler further says for Kidney Cancer. The Kidney Tumors are diagnosed when they are smaller in size. Smoking seems to play an important role to make this Cancer more aggressive. Quit of Smoking seems to lower the risk.
The low consumption of Cigarettes has not impacted the rate of Bladder Cancer as it does for Kidney Cancer.Kohler further added that there may be many other factors that are important for the development of Bladder Cancer.
These studies were presented at a Medical Meeting, the data and the conclusions are to be reviewed on the ground basis before publishing in any Journal.
