Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a common complication of cancer and it is well-established that cancer and or its treatment can lead to the development of CKD and finally end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Therefore it appears that the relationship between CKD and cancer is reciprocal since CKD and end stage renal disease are common complications of cancer and its treatment. On the other hand, both CKD and ESRD are risk factors for the development of a variety type of malignancies.
