Transitional Cell Carcinoma (TCC)

Prevention of Transitional Cell Carcinoma (TCC)

Prevention of transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) may be possible with lifestyle changes and treating underlying conditions that may cause this type of cancer. However, TCC and urinary cancers are not easily preventable and are likely to require early detection to limit the damage. Individuals are urged to monitor symptoms and signs that are typically abnormal. 

Treating kidney disease, high blood pressure, and making other adjustments may prevent conditions related to TCC. The best plan of action is adopt a healthy lifestyle. Reducing dairy and red meat intake, and replacing these items with fruits and vegetable and plenty of fluid may help prevent TCC. Eliminating smoking altogether also works toward reducing the risk of developing bladder cancer, especially among white males. 

There is no guarantee that making these changes can eliminate urinary cancers. For the most part, taking preventative measures may lower the risk of TCC and urinary cancers caused by these cancer cells.   

By drinking plenty of water and minimizing the risk factors for renal pelvis cancer, you may be able to help prevent the disease.
