Kidneys are bean shaped organs and are in a pair. They are located in the lower abdomen, one on either side of the vertebral column. Kidneys perform the task of filtering the toxic wastes from blood and thus helps in eliminating it in the form of urine. Kidneys when affected with cancer loses out on the potential to filter the blood and thus the life of an individual is affected. In cases where cancer is benign (stays in one place), minor surgical procedures and other radiation treatments are used and in the cases where cancer is malignant (spreads to tissues), surgical removal of the organ along with the removal of nearby organs is used, this is also coupled with various other techniques to get the best results.
