Kidney cancer

Information about kidney cancer symptoms, kidney cancer causes, diagnosis, homeopathy medicine or homeopathic treatment for kidney cancer symptoms.

Kidney cancer is a disease in which cancer cells develop in the kidney and may spread to other organs. There are three types of kidney cancers: renal cell carcinoma; Wilm’s tumor, a fast growing tumor that affects children under the age of five; and transitional cell carcinoma, which occurs in the urine collecting region of the kidney.

Causes of kidney cancer

Kidney cancer, like all cancers, can be inherited or environmental. Inherited means that certain muted genes that cause kidney cancer are passed down from generation to generation. Inherited cancers are also known as familial cancers, because they run in families.

Very small percentage of of kidney cancers are familial, with rest believed to be sporadic. Sporadic refers to cancers that develop in an unpredictable manner in patients with no family history of kidney cancer.

Familial kidney cancer tends to develop early in life and these patients tend to develop multiple tumors in the kidneys. They can also develop tumors in other areas of the body, including the brain, spinal cord, and pancreas. Familial kidney cancer patients usually have relatives with a history of kidney cancer, and this is often one of the major clues to this diagnosis.

If the cancer is environmental it means that there has been exposure to carcinogens (agents which causes cancer) from, for example, smoking, the workplace, or from one’s diet. Carcinogens do their damage by mutating genes. If the gene that is mutated is in the kidney and is important for controlling cell growth, the kidney cell can then divide in an uncontrolled manner. This often occurs in a haphazard manner, and additional mutations can then be generated.

Eventually the tumor cells may become malignant and begin to divide uncontrollably.

Of all the potential carcinogens, the one that is best proven is tobacco use, which increases the risk of developing kidney cancer.

Various chemicals that are used in certain industries, such as aromatic hydrocarbons, have also been suspected to cause kidney cancer.

Other factors such as obesity, high blood pressure, dialysis radiation may play an important role.

Homeopathic treatment for kidney cancer symptoms

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering.

  • My family had lots of inherited kidney troubles, my cousin aged 60yrs died of kidney cancer. I myself passed white urine for many years, albeit under nature cure cleansing diets. I used for another problem SENNA 6x one dose, it to my suprise gave a powerful aggravation in my right kidney. Curative so Senna worth looking into.

  • Who knows the real cause of ANY type of cancer ? No one here.
    But the cause of simply all disease and especially of ANY type of cancer has been discovered by the german Dr. Hamer around 30 years ago. There is a special cause in every cancer and this is an emotional shock or conflictual situation.

    So ovarian cancer has a special cause (losing someone) and a pulomoar cancer another specifical case (fear of dying himself of fear for the death of somebody dear) and this ist TRUE in EVERY singel case, because these are biological laws discovered by DR. Hamer.

    Most of cases are self healing processes whoch would go away by themself when the patient would not become fear because of the symptoms. So in this cases ANY homeopathic remedies would help
    because the self healing processes has started already when the patient arrived at the homeopath.
    The “treatment” is mostly only helping the patient overcome the fear and have hope for the healing.
    But in about 20% of the cancers the cause (emotional conflict) is still active and the cancer growths so in these cases the conflict has to be identified and stopped first.
    But cancer is anyway not what the medicine and homeopathy thinks it is.

    I suggest any homeopath should study the New german medicine of Dr. Hamer
    You would be suprised how little homeopathy really knows about the real causes of diseases and what you miss in treating people without the knowledge of the new german medicine.
    As many good thing in the health sector this new medicine is coming from germany (as von Hohenheim (Paracelsius), Hildegard von Bingen, Hahnemann, Dr. Hamer . All names start with ‘H’, curious enough )

    The new medicine is even more than what homeopathy was for the humanity 200 years ago.

    Any beginner in the new german medicine can be with this knowledge a lot mor effective in curing cancer than all homeopaths together, than homeopathy knows also nothing about cancer because it took over only stupid theories from the standard medicine which are not true.
