About Prostate & Urological Cancer

Prostate cancer and other urological cancers occur when cells within the prostate or other urological organs begin to grow out of control. Prostate cancer occurs within the prostate gland and is the most common cancer among men, excluding skin cancer. Prostate cancer is often treated successfully. Other urological cancers include cancer of the bladder, kidney, prostate, and testicles.

Signs & Symptoms

Prostate & Urological Cancer Screening

The decision to be screened for prostate cancer is personalized.

Talk to your provider, who will help you make an informed decision on whether prostate cancer screening is right for you. Screenings include Prostate specific antigen (PSA) test, which checks a man’s blood for high PSA levels, a marker for prostate cancer and a physical exam.

Diagnosing bladder cancer may involve labs and imaging tests, such as a urine sample and cystoscopy, which helps your provider view inside your urinary tract.

Prostate & Urological Cancer Treatment

Prostate and other types of urological cancer are often treated using multiple types of coordinated treatments, including:

  • Surgery
  • Radiation Therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Hormone Therapy
  • Drug Therapy
