What are the types of urologic cancers?

Urological cancer treatment in Pune

Urologic cancers result from the growth of abnormal cells that later develop into cancerous tumours in the urinary tract. Urologic cancers are both gender-specific as well as neutral. Hence, different types exist.

Some male-specific urologic cancers include:

  • Prostate cancer most common in urologic cancers

The semen-producing gland or the prostate gland is affected during the development of prostate cancer.

  • Testicular cancer

Cancer that develops in either or both testicles and is highly treatable is testicular cancer.

  • Penile Cancer

This type of cancer is usually found within the tissues of the penis or very rarely on the skin. This is generally curable when diagnosed well advanced in time.

Gender-neutral urologic cancers constitute the following types:

  • Bladder cancer

Bladder cancer most commonly develops in the cells that make up the bladder lining and is more prevalent in older adults but can generally affect anyone.

  • Kidney Cancer

With Renal cell carcinoma being one of the most common types of kidney cancers, it directly affects the functioning of the kidneys.

  • Adrenal cancer

Cancer of the adrenal glands is known as adrenal cancer.

While anyone and everyone can get affected by urological cancer, certain sections of the population are especially vulnerable to it. The at-risk population for urologic cancer includes users of tobacco, men in the age group of 15 to 35 years, poor genital hygiene, HPV infection, and a small percentage of cases are reflected in those genetically inherited.
