Cancer

As part of a multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment, the Emory Department of Urology plays a vital role in the treatment of the cancers listed below.

Bladder Cancer

The bladder is a hollow organ composed of layers including an inner lining and muscular outer layers. Bladder cancer typically begins in the inner layer of the bladder and grows into the bladder wall. In order to determine the best treatment for bladder cancer patients, doctors must determine how deeply the cancer has spread into these layers, known as the cancer stage. Learn more >>

Kidney Cancer

Kidney cancer can occur from the outer part of the kidney or the inner lining. The outer cortex of the kidney filters the blood and makes urine. Kidney cancer that arises from this area is known as renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Learn more >>

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in American males between the ages of 15 and 34. Although serious, testis cancer is highly treatable with cure rates approaching 100%, especially when detected early. Learn more >>
