2. Loss of Appetite
Almost anyone who has developed any type of cancer may experience a loss of appetite. This is a common symptom for most cancer patients. A person who has kidney cancer may experience a loss of appetite. These individuals simply do not have a desire to eat, even foods that were once enjoyable to them. The reason for this could be caused by the metabolic changes that are caused by cancer.
Some of the other factors that may contribute to the loss of appetite include weakness, pain, fatigue, and depression. In individuals who have kidney cancer, cancer may have spread to the stomach and throughout the abdominal muscles. This can cause them to feel full and simply not wanting to eat. It can cause them to simply not feel hungry or it may cause them to have stomach issues as areas may become obstructed. This can cause them to simply not eat.
