Why World Kidney Cancer Q&A Day?
June 22 will mark the first World Kidney Cancer Q&A Day – a day where the global kidney cancer community of patients, caregivers, family, health care professionals and patient organisations will raise awareness and funds for kidney cancer.
Kidney cancer is a serious disease that affects hundreds of thousands of people around the world and is resulting in a growing burden and many unanswered questions. The worldwide incidence of kidney cancer is predicted to rise by 22 percent by 2020 and the cause of kidney cancer still remains largely unknown. Treatment varies around the world and too often kidney cancer is forgotten.
