At his sublime best, VVS Laxman is a sight for the gods. Wristy, willowy and sinuous, he can match - sometimes even better - Tendulkar for strokeplay. His on-side game is comparable to his idol Azharuddin's, yet he is decidedly more assured on the off side and has the rare gift of being able to hit the same ball to either side. The Australians, who have suffered more than most, paid the highest compliment after India's 2003-04 tour Down Under by admitting they did not know where to bowl to him. Laxman, a one-time medical student, finally showed signs of coming to terms with his considerable gifts in March 2001, as he tormented Steve Waugh's thought-to-be-invincible Australians with a majestic 281 to stand the Kolkata Test on its head. But even though he had another wonderful series against the Australians in 2003-04 with two centuries, one of them involving a back-from-the-dead, match-winning, 300-plus partnership with Kolkata ally Rahul Dravid at Adelaide, he hasn't quite managed the consistency that could have turned him into a batting great. Between dazzling and sometimes workmanlike hundreds, he has suffered the frustration of numerous twenties and thirties and has lost his place in the one-day side. Nothing, though, has deterred him from tormenting his favourite opponents with silken strokes and piles of runs: in the course of the double-hundred at Feroz Shah Kotla in 2008, he became the second Indian batsman after Tendulkar to score more than 2000 runs against the Australians.

Kidney Cancer Awareness

The James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer, with support from Kidney Cancer UK, today announces new research that shows a shockingly low awareness and understanding of kidney cancer amongst the Great British general public. The YouGov survey of 2,145 GB adults shows that kidney cancer is the least heard about form of the disease, with only 2% of GB adults having heard much about it when compared to a range of other cancers. Interestingly, over half of GB adults claim to have heard most about cervical cancer and 42% for leukaemia, even though there are fewer cases of these diseases than kidney cancer each year. According to the survey, only half of GB adults have ever even heard of the term kidney cancer.

Often, kidney cancers are found incidentally, meaning that the cancer is found during medical tests for some other illness such as gallbladder disease.1 However, because the symptoms of kidney cancer can often be mistaken for signs of other diseases or ailments, the disease often goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed until it has metastasized. The first course of treatment for kidney cancer is usually an operation to remove the primary tumor and the diseased kidney.2 Other commonly used treatments include immunotherapy, radiation, and chemotherapy.

The exact cause of kidney cancer is unknown; however, early detection can help to offset the spread of cancer; and recent advances in diagnosis and surgical procedures such as radiation and chemotherapy allow even more patients to live with the disease while maintaining their normal lifestyles and the objective of World Kidney Day and Kidney Cancer Awareness Month is to raise awareness and to encourage regular screenings of all patients with diabetes and hypertension for chronic kidney disease. If detected early, chronic kidney disease can be treated;

In adults, the most common type of kidney cancer is renal cell carcinoma. Other less common types of kidney cancer can occur. Transitional cell carcinoma, which affects the ureters, can also begin in the kidneys. Children are more likely to develop a kind of kidney cancer called Wilms’ tumor.The incidence of kidney cancer seems to be increasing, though it isn’t clear why. Many kidney cancers are detected during procedures for other diseases or conditions. Imaging techniques such as computerized tomography are being used more often, which may lead to the discovery of more kidney cancers.
