Blood pressure monitoring to tackle kidney cancer?:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Better monitoring of blood pressure could help stem the huge rise in kidney cancer, according to the findings of a report by Cancer Research UK. There has been a 68% rise in incidence of the disease over the last 20 years, the charity finds. While smoking is thought to account for some 30-40% of cases, obesity and high blood pressure are said to be the other main causes. Kidney cancer affects some 5,700 people annually in the UK, which is also said to have among the lowest survival rates for the disease in Europe.
