What are Common Cancers in Urology?

Urological cancers are relatively common, with prostate, bladder, and kidney cancers among the 10 most common cancers diagnosed in the United States. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among American men.

Urology cancers may include the following organs:

  • Bladder
  • Kidneys
  • Prostate
  • Penis

It is important to see a care team that can put you first. These organs often work together and impact other areas of your body. If you have tumors or cancer, you may need to see an urology oncologist.
