The incidence of kidney cancer in children is under 5 years of age, especially for children aged 2-3 years. In the clinical medical records of renal cell carcinoma in, the youngest is 27 day newborn. With age, the incidence of kidney cancer in children is gradually decreased.
The younger the age of renal cancer, the better the tumor differentiation is, the slower the growth rate is, and the treatment effect is better. Therefore, early detection and early treatment are important for the treatment of renal cancer in children. If you find a child abdominal mass, should immediately go to the hospital for examination, there are several ways:
X-ray film of abdomen and chest. Abdominal radiography can be preliminarily determined is not long with kidney tumor; chest radiography can understand whether lung tumor cell metastasis, because early embryonic kidney tumors often spread to the lungs.
Type B ultrasonography is of great help in diagnosis. Type B ultrasound can further understand where the tumor grows in the kidney. Intravenous pyelography is of decisive importance for the diagnosis.
The diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma in children should be differentiated from those associated with hydronephrosis, renal cysts, renal neuroblastoma, mesodermal cell tumors, and rare forms of sarcoma.
