Kidney Infectious Diseases & Onco-Nephrology
Kidney Infection (Pyelonephritis)
One of the urinary tract infections is a kidney infection (UTI). The majority of kidney infections are caused by bacteria or viruses that infect the lower urinary tract initially. The infection then spreads upstream to one or both kidneys, which are located in the upper urinary system.
In certain circumstances, kidney infections develop after surgery if germs enter the body during the procedure and move via your blood to the kidneys.
A kidney infection need prompt medical attention. A kidney infection can permanently damage your kidneys if not treated appropriately, or the germs might move to your bloodstream and cause life-threatening septicemia.
Onco-Nephrology (Kidney Cancer)
Onco-nephrology refers to the wide variety of kidney problems that can occur in cancer patients. Aside from kidney cancer, non-renal tumours can cause renal problems and respond to anticancer medicines such as chemotherapy.
Kidney cancer, also known as renal cancer, is a condition in which kidney cells become malignant and develop uncontrollably, resulting in the formation of a tumour. Almost all kidney tumours begin in the lining of small tubes in the kidney. Renal cell carcinoma is the medical name for this type of kidney cancer. The majority of kidney malignancies are discovered before they spread to other organs. And tumours that are detected early are easier to treat.
