Gallbladder cancer

Gallbladder cancer begins in the gallbladder. The gallbladder is a little organ on the right side of your stomach below your liver. The gallbladder supplies bile, a digestive fluid produced by the liver. Gallbladder cancer is exceptional. When gallbladder cancer is diagnosed at its most primitive stages, the chance to restore health is good. Gallbladder cancer is not easy to diagnose since it often shows no signs or symptoms. The fairly hidden position of the gallbladder makes it easier for gallbladder cancer to grow without being detected.

Gastric cancer

Stomach cancer, also known as gastric cancer, occurs in the stomach, a muscular sac that receives and stores food that is eaten, preparing it for further digestion.  The most common kind of stomach cancer originates in glandular cells that line the inside of the stomach and produce mucous.  Stomach cancer often does not exhibit specific symptoms until a relatively late stage of the cancer.  Unfortunately, if first detected at a late stage, the prognosis of stomach cancer is often poor.  Treatment of stomach cancer may include surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Invasive lobular carcinoma

Invasive lobular carcinoma is a kind of breast cancer which begins in the lobules - the glands in the breast that produce milk - and then spreads into the surrounding tissues.  Although invasive lobular carcinoma is often more difficult to detect than the more common form of breast cancer (invasive ductal carcinoma) and is therefore first diagnosed at a later stage, its prognosis is generally better than that of invasive ductal carcinoma.  Treatment of invasive lobular carcinoma may involve surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or hormone therapy.

Kidney cancer/renal cancer

The kidneys are fist-sized, bean-shaped organs, located on each side of the spine and situated behind the organs of the abdomen.  Kidney cancer can occur in people of all ages.  The type of kidney cancer that usually arises in adults is called renal cell carcinoma.  Renal cell carcinoma originates in the cells of the small tubes within the kidneys.  Surgery is often the preferred method of treatment if the renal cell carcinoma has not yet spread to other organs.  If the cancer has already spread, treatment becomes considerably more difficult.  In children, the most common type of kidney cancer is Wilms’ tumor.  Wilms’ tumor responds well to treatment, which may involve a combination of surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.  Kidney cancer often does not show any signs or symptoms in the early stages, making it difficult to detect.  In advanced stages, signs or symptoms of kidney cancer may include blood in the urine and a palpable lump in the kidney area.  Less often, one may experience fatigue, weight loss and persistent pain in the sides.
