A urologic cancer diagnosis can be devastating. If you have been diagnosed — or suspect you have — prostate, kidney, bladder and penile cancer, talk to us. Our dedicated team of experts take an integrated, patient-centered approach to diagnose and treat these diseases to ensure optimal outcomes with minimal impact on your quality of life.

By working collaboratively, our clinicians and researchers transform innovative scientific discoveries into promising new treatments not available elsewhere.

Highlights of our urologic oncology program include:

Advanced imaging technologies that can accurately pinpoint a tumor’s size, shape and location, enhancing our doctors’ detection and treatment planning capabilities, as well as better monitoring of “active surveillance” patients

  • Minimally-invasive and robotically-assisted surgical techniques that can offer optimal outcomes with less pain, reduced scarring and faster healing time
  • Targeted radiation regimens that is sculpted to the size and shape of the tumor, focusing its impact on cancer cells while minimizing exposure to nearby normal tissues
  • A drug development pipeline that quickly identifies new cancer drugs and turns them into promising therapies for clinical trials
  • Enhanced urinary diversion techniques that minimize interference with everyday life
  • Fertility-preserving options for younger patients who want to have children after cancer treatment

Additionally, City of Hope patients have access to our extensive team of supportive care and survivorship experts, who will help you and your caregivers achieve and maintain a better quality of life during and after your cancer treatment.
