2016 Kidney Cancer Patient Survey -CLOSED
Welcome to our Kidney Cancer Patient Survey 2016
Please click the image below which will open a new window for you to be able to complete the 2016 Kidney Cancer Patient Survey.
We thank you for your time, it is much appreciated by us and the kidney cancer patients, carers and their families we seek to help though its findings.
Why do we need your support by you completing this survey? Because kidney cancer is a silent killer and for many the first time they hear those words are from their doctor then they ask, ‘what is kidney cancer?’. We have to raise awareness and ensure people are aware and look for the symptoms: persistent cough, a lump or pain in your flank, traces of blood in your urine and get checked before it’s too late.
- In 2013 more than 11,800 people were diagnosed with kidney cancer, that’s about 33 people each day.
- The incidence of kidney cancer has been steadily increasing in the UK, mainly attributed to lifestyle factors, such as obesity and smoking.
- In addition, an increase in the number of tumours detected when a patient has a scan for an unrelated condition may have contributed to the rise in the number of cases.
- Kidney cancer is now the seventh most common cancer in the UK and accounts for three per cent of all new diagnoses of cancer; it is the fifth most common type of cancer in men and the tenth in women.
Thank you for your support.
