Cancer diagnosis & surveillance
We offer advanced, state-of-the-art treatment for all kinds of urologic cancers. These include:
Prostate cancer is often treated successfully. According to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer is the second-most common type of cancer in American men. Prostate cancer is also the second-leading cause of cancer death in men. Prostate cancer occurs in one out of six men. Diagnosed cases have risen rapidly in recent years, but mortality rates are declining, possibly due to increased screening.
The goal of testing is to find it early. The earlier you find it, you can treat it more effectively or monitor the growth with active surveillance. The American Urological Association recommends annual PSA (prostate-specific antigen) testing for men. Ask our doctors at Advanced Urology if it’s time for yours.
Testicular cancer is treated successfully in more than 95% of cases. According to the American Cancer Society, the disease is most prevalent in men between 18 and 32. We first perform outpatient surgery to remove the diseased testicle. Subsequent treatment depends on the stage and tumor type and may require radiation, chemotherapy and/or surgical lymph node removal.
Bladder cancer accounts for approximately 90% of cancers of the urinary tract (renal pelvis, ureters, bladder, urethra). Incidence of bladder cancer increases with age. People over the age of 70 develop the disease two to three times more often than those aged 55 to 69 and 15 to 20 times more often than those aged 30 to 54. Bladder cancer is much more common in men. Treatment depends on the stage of the disease, the type of cancer and the patient’s age and overall health.
Kidney cancer can develop into several types. Surgery is the mainstay treatment of kidney cancer. Surgical treatments include partial and radical nephrectomy using a laparoscopic approach such as da Vinci nephrectomy or robotic partial nephrectomy.
