What urologic cancers are becoming increasingly common?

Along with prostate cancer, the following other urologic cancers are becoming increasingly common among American men and women:
  • Bladder cancer: An intestinal bladder can be created for patients in whom the bladder is removed.
  • Kidney cancer: There should be an emphasis on sparing the kidney whenever possible.
  • Testicular cancer: In men ages 15 to 45, testicular cancer is the most common form of urologic cancer.
As with other forms of cancer, the earlier urological cancer is detected, the greater the chance of successful treatment.
