Urologic Cancer Q & A

What are the different types of urologic cancer?

Urologic cancer is any cancer affecting the urinary system in both men and women. Cancers affecting the male reproductive system are also classified as urologic cancers. This list includes:

  • Bladder cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Adrenal gland cancer
  • Testicular cancer
  • Penile cancer
  • Prostate cancer

The Advanced Urology Medical Offices team has many years of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of all urologic cancers, and they offer tailored solutions for every patient.

What are the symptoms of urologic cancer?

Urologic cancer symptoms can vary widely by the type of cancer and the individual. Some of the many possible urologic cancer symptoms can include:

  • Slow-starting urine stream 
  • Irregular urine stream
  • Weak urine stream
  • Increased urge to urinate
  • Low back pain
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pain during urination
  • Pain during ejaculation
  • Blood in your urine
  • Blood in your semen
  • Bone pain

Urologic cancers might not cause any noticeable symptoms in the beginning, and that’s why many cancers are identified during routine screenings. Your urologist will recommend a testing schedule if you need prostate cancer screening or any other kind of regular cancer screening.

The symptoms above can also happen with other, noncancerous conditions as well. For example, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer can both cause weak urine flow and blood in your urine. 

To get a clear picture of what you’re dealing with, and whether you actually have a urologic cancer or another condition, see your urologist at Advanced Urology Medical Offices for accurate diagnosis and treatment. 

What is the treatment for urologic cancer?

Many factors can impact the way your urologic cancer is treated, including the type of cancer, how advanced the cancer is, your whole-body health, and your personal wishes. Some of the possible options include chemotherapy, radiation, robotic surgery, traditional open surgery, cryotherapy, and many other options. 

Like all types of cancer, urologic cancers can spread to other parts of the body if they’re not diagnosed and treated promptly. The earlier you begin treatment for your urologic cancer, the better the chances of treating it completely and with the least invasive options. 

The Advanced Urology Medical Offices team has superior diagnostic and treatment skills, and they’re experienced with all types of urologic cancer. Book your appointment by calling or using the online scheduler now.
