In the paper the role of long range interactions on the growth of a volume conserving surface is studied using the Nonlocal Conserved Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (NCKPZ) equation. It is shown that previous theoretical predictions are inconsistent with an exact one-dimensional result. This serves as a motivation for construction of a Self-Consistent Expansion (SCE) that recovers the exact one-dimensional result, and gives the scaling exponents in higher dimensions as well. A possible application of this result to colloidal systems is discussed.
