Cancer-related kidney diseases encompass a broad spectrum of conditions that affect the kidneys and are directly or indirectly associated with cancer. Understanding the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options for these diseases is crucial for healthcare professionals and patients alike. This comprehensive article aims to provide an in-depth analysis of cancer-related kidney diseases, shedding light on their underlying causes, highlighting the telltale symptoms for early detection, exploring the intricate path of diagnosis, and delving into the array of treatment options available to ensure optimal patient care. By examining the latest research and medical advancements in this field, this article seeks to equip readers with valuable insights and knowledge to effectively manage and combat cancer-related kidney diseases. The underlying causes of cancerrelated kidney diseases, including renal cell carcinoma, transitional cell carcinoma, and metastatic kidney cancer, are elucidated, emphasizing the significance of risk factors such as smoking, obesity, and genetic predispositions. Recognizing the telltale symptoms, such as hematuria, flank pain, unintended weight loss, and fatigue, is crucial for early detection and timely intervention. The intricate path of diagnosis involves utilizing imaging tests, biopsies, and blood and urine tests to confirm the presence of cancer and determine its type and stage. Treatment options, including surgery, targeted therapies, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, and chemotherapy, are explored in-depth, highlighting their role in disease management and improving patient outcomes. This analysis underscores the importance of multidisciplinary collaboration among healthcare professionals to deliver comprehensive and personalized care. By equipping healthcare providers and patients with a comprehensive understanding of cancer-related kidney diseases, this analysis aims to facilitate informed decision-making, enhance early detection rates, and optimize patient care in the ongoing battle against these challenging conditions.

Cancer-related kidney diseases encompass a wide range of conditions that affect the kidneys and are directly or indirectly linked to cancer . The kidneys play a vital role in filtering waste products and excess fluid from the bloodstream, maintaining electrolyte balance, and regulating blood pressure . When cancerous cells invade the kidneys or when cancer spreads from other parts of the body to the kidneys, it can lead to various kidney-related complications and pose significant challenges to patient health . Understanding the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options for cancer-related kidney diseases is of paramount importance in providing comprehensive and effective healthcare . This article aims to provide an in-depth analysis of these diseases, unveiling their underlying causes, identifying the telltale symptoms for early detection, navigating the intricate path of diagnosis, and exploring the array of treatment options available to ensure optimal patient care . Depending on the patient, discussions about possibilities for renal replacement treatment should begin in late stage 3 in CKD patients who are visibly advancing . The possibility of referring surgical candidates to a transplant programme is taken into account. For those choosing dialysis, access for either hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis should be explored at stage 4, and for those choosing hemodialysis, vein mapping should be completed . Typically, at that point, vascular access should be installed. The precise timing of the beginning of dialysis therapy is a matter of debate. KDOQI advises people with symptoms to begin when their eGFR is less than 14 ml/min/m2. Start treatment in asymptomatic patients with an eGFR of less than 6 ml/min/m2. Cooper et al. carried out an 828-person randomised control study . Over the past two decades, cancer therapies have advanced from conventional chemotherapies to cutting-edge treatments that target genetic abnormalities and immunotherapies that use the body’s immune system to combat cancer cells. Although all of these medicines are linked to kidney damage, they have collectively improved cancer patients’ chances of survival . It is crucial to take into account how the presence of chronic kidney disease, acute kidney injury, and other kidney disorders may affect treatment options as well as how specific treatments may increase the risk of kidney toxicity because kidney function is a key factor in determining a patient’s eligibility for newer drugs and clinical trials. The most frequent cause of intrinsic renal injury is acute tubular necrosis, which can be brought on by a number of chemotherapeutic agents, antibiotics, and other drugs. Following chemotherapy, there is a severe immunosuppression that results in sepsis and, consequently, acute tubular necrosis.2,3 Acute interstitial nephritis, which is connected with the use of drugs such antibiotics, is another typical intrinsic-associated damage . However, the prevalence of patients with acute interstitial nephritis is rising due to access to new immunotherapies and targeted treatments.
