Research found Kidney Cancer Caused By Heavy Smoking

The research report that people who like smoking will have a high chance to get risk of advanced kidney cancer. 

In a new study, a team from Duke University Medical Center reviewed the cases of 845 patients who had had surgery for kidney cancer -- or renal cell carcinoma -- between 2000 and 2009. They found that current and former smokers were 1.5 to 1.6 times more likely to have advanced cancer rather than nonsmokers.

For smoker that has been smoking for along period of time was associated with advanced renal cell carcinoma. The investigator had found that about 9 percent reduced the risk disease only for every 10 years
The American Urological Association’s annual meeting, in Washington. D.C get special press conference from this findings. Beside that, the rates of bladder cancer did not fall along with lower rates of smoking in the United States. Another study showed that the researchers also examined a national database and found that lung cancer rates decreased per capita consumption of cigarettes between 1973 and 2007, in contrast the same type of consistent decline was not seen in bladder cancer rates.

The researchers at the State University of New York Upstate Medical University in Syracuse said in a news release from the American Urological Association, rising in bladder cancer in a few decades have been offset by other contributing instead of decreasing in bladder cancer duo to smoking.

Dr. Toby Kohler said in the news release that these two studies actually bring a new insight which has two crucial urologic cancers. Moreover, kidney tumors can happened at this day and easily detected by people, it is because the more people smoke, the more aggressive cancer is.  Cessation of smoking seems to lower the risk," Kohler said.

"For bladder cancer on the other hand, the decrease in smoking rates has not impacted the incidence to the same degree that it has for lung cancer, suggesting that there may be other factors which are becoming more important for the development of the disease," he added.

The good way of avoiding risk of kidney cancer is “DON’T SMOKE”.  Try to stay away from cigarette start from now if you don’t want get cancer soon. These studies are being presented at a medical meeting, the data and conclusions should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.
