Prevention is better than cure. We've seen, read, and heard this line numerous times in our life. Even in the contemporary world, preventive measures and minimising the risks of developing specific illnesses is a much better solution to abide by.
Two bean-shaped organs, each around the size of your fist, make up your kidneys. Each kidney is situated on either side of your spine, and they are situated behind your abdominal organs. The primary function of the kidneys is to filter blood entering the renal arteries to eliminate extra water, salt, and waste materials. These compounds cause urine to form. The renal pelvis, a region in the centre of each kidney, is where urine gathers before exiting the kidneys through long, thin tubes known as ureters.
Cancer that starts in the kidneys is known as kidney cancer. The most typical form of kidney cancer is renal cell carcinoma (RCC), sometimes referred to as renal cell cancer or renal cell adenocarcinoma. There are other types of kidney cancers. Let us look at certain preventive measures which can minimize the chances of kidney cancer in humans.
Minimize Chances of Kidney Cancer
Even though the origins and factors that lead to development of kidney cancer are still unclear, improving your health may help lower your risk of developing kidney cancer.
- Quit Smoking: Smokers are more likely to develop kidney cancer than non-smokers. The risk goes down if you stop. When you quit smoking, you also minimise the chances of developing other kinds of diseases and ailments. Therefore, cutting down on tobacco, in general, ensures a better lifestyle.
- Obesity may be one of the risk factors: Obesity and kidney cancer have been linked in numerous studies. A normal body weight helps maintain your body in balance and reduces your risk of kidney cancer. It maintains your health.
- Being Exposed to Cadmium: According to certain research, contamination to the metal cadmium is linked to kidney cancer. Dealing with batteries, chemicals, or welding supplies may also put someone in greater danger. For smokers who have been subjected to cadmium, this risk is significantly larger. Therefore, try to prevent being exposed to harmful materials like cadmium.
- Consuming a Diet Low in Fat: Once you attune your dietary habits to what is deemed healthy, you'll be able to minimise various diseases. A balanced, holistic diet, with vitamins, minerals, and proteins, ensures that your body can automatically fight against illnesses while safeguarding your health to optimal levels.
- Lowering Blood Pressure: People with high blood pressure are more likely to develop kidney cancer — especially men. Therefore, it is advisable to lower your blood pressure levels.
