Urologic Cancer Overview
Urological cancer refers to cancer in organs of the urinary system and the male reproductive system. The earlier these types of cancers are discovered, as with most cancers, the better the chances are of recovery. UVA Cancer Center treats bladder cancer, kidney cancer, penile cancer, prostate cancer and testicular cancer at the Urology Clinic.
