O primeiro Dia Mundial de Perguntas e Respostas do Câncer de Rim destaca a carga global

O câncer de rim é uma doença silenciosa que está em ascensão. A incidência global de câncer de rim terá um aumento surpreendente de 22% até 2020. As explicações são incompletas, mas incluem fatores de risco como envelhecimento, obesidade, pressão arterial alta e tabagismo.

A falta de respostas é a razão pela qual a International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC) [Aliança Internacional de Câncer do Rim] e organizações de câncer de rim em todo o mundo estão marcando o primeiro Dia Mundial de Perguntas e Respostas de Câncer do Rim (World Kidney Cancer Q&A Day). Em 22 de junho, pacientes, cuidadores, profissionais de saúde e organizações locais estarão fazendo perguntas e buscando respostas:

  • O que explica a incidência variada de câncer de rim em todo o mundo? A alta incidência das taxas é observada no norte e leste da Europa, América do Norte e Austrália, com as maiores taxas estimadas na República Tcheca?
  • Como podemos abordar a crescente lacuna nas taxas de mortalidade por câncer de rim entre economias emergentes e desenvolvidas?
  • Como podemos prevenir o câncer de rim, ou detectar mais cedo, quando os pacientes ainda podem ser curados?

“Precisamos de uma colaboração global para o câncer de rim - em pesquisa, conscientização e defesa - porque quando trabalhamos juntos, temos um maior impacto do que quando fazemos sozinhos e podemos gerar mudanças significativas para os pacientes", diz a Dra. Rachel Giles, presidente do IKCC.

Um novo artigo elaborado por especialistas líderes, The Global Burden of Kidney Cancer: A Call to Action (A carga global do câncer de rim, uma chamada para ação) (em revisão) destaca os desafios enfrentados no diagnóstico e manejo da doença.

O IKCC também lançou o Teste de Perguntas e Respostas do Dia Mundial do Câncer de Rim. Disponível em nove idiomas, o teste de sete perguntas avalia o que você sabe e o que precisa saber sobre câncer de rim. Para cada questionário preenchido, US$ 5 serão direcionados para um projeto de pesquisa de alta prioridade que beneficiará pacientes em todo o mundo.

Grande voz, grande causa
Juliet Ibrahim, humanitária e celebridade conhecida em todo o mundo, é a embaixadora global da campanha.

“Assim como a arte, o câncer de rim não conhece fronteiras. Trabalhando juntos – compartilhando nossa experiência e nosso conhecimento - fazemos a diferença para as pessoas afetadas pelo câncer de rim”, disse Juliet. A Juliet Ibrahim Foundation dá esperança para pacientes com câncer do rim em toda a África.

O Dia Mundial de Perguntas e Respostas do Câncer de Rim foi criado pelo IKCC (www.ikcc.org), um órgão mundial de 30 organizações de câncer centradas na melhoria da vida das pessoas afetadas pelo câncer de rim. A campanha é apoiada pela Bristol-Myers Squibb, Novartis, Pfizer, e Ipsen.
