Uro Oncosurgeon

Uro-oncology/ genito-urinary oncology is a specialized field in oncology, focusing on cancers found in the urinary and the male reproductive organs. These include prostate cancer, kidney cancer, adrenal tumors, bladder cancer, testicular cancer and cancers of the penis. Urologist who specializes in the management of genito-urinary cancers is called Uro-oncologist.

Bladder Cancer

This cancer typically affects older adults. It's usually diagnosed early, when it's still treatable. It's likely to recur, so follow-up tests are typically recommended. The most common symptom is blood in the urine. Treatments include surgery, biological therapy and chemotherapy

Prostate Cancer

A man's prostate produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. Symptoms include difficulty with urination, but sometimes there are no symptoms at all. Some types of prostate cancer grow slowly. In some of these cases, monitoring is recommended. Other types are aggressive and require radiation, surgery, hormone therapy, chemotherapy or other treatments.

Kidney Cancer

Kidney cancer is cancer that begins in the kidneys. Your kidneys are two bean-shaped organs, each about the size of your fist. They're located behind your abdominal organs, with one kidney on each side of your spine. In adults, renal cell carcinoma is the most common type of kidney cancer.
