The exact cause of kidney cancer is unknown. But there are certain things called risk factors that can increase your chance of getting the disease. Some risk factors are linked to medical conditions or your lifestyle, while others are linked to your job. These risk factors include:
If you feel you may be at risk, first talk to your family doctor (GP) about your concerns. He or she may advise you to visit a specialist. If you have any hereditary causes of kidney cancer, do visit your doctor regularly. Some doctors may advise you to have regular tests such as CT scans.
