Pancreatic cancer

Cancer which has its beginning in the pancreas is called pancreatic cancer. When pancreatic cancer spreads, it generally moves through the lymphatic system. Physicians often take out lymph nodes in the vicinity of the pancreatic cancer to find out whether they hold cancer cells. Pancreatic cancer that overlaps to other organs is called metastatic pancreatic cancer.

Pituitary tumor

Pituitary tumors are abnormal growths that develop in the pituitary gland, a pea-sized, hormone-secreting gland situated at the base of the brain and behind the nose.  Pituitary tumors may go undetected and not show any symptoms.  However, pituitary tumors may also disrupt normal hormone secretion from the pituitary gland.  This disruption to normal hormone levels may then lead numerous other conditions.  Some possible symptoms of a pituitary tumour are persistent headaches, visual disturbances, nausea, changes in appearance and problems concentrating.  Pituitary tumors are most commonly noncancerous, which means that they do not spread to other parts of the body.  Pituitary tumors may be treated in a number of ways including surgery, radiation therapy or with medications.  <//font>

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.
