• Overview

    Uro-oncology, a highly specialized field of medicine, focuses on the precise diagnosis, treatment, and management of cancers affecting the urinary system and male reproductive organs. Uro-oncologists are dedicated experts who specialize in providing comprehensive care for various urological malignancies, including kidney, bladder, prostate, testicular, ureteral, and adrenal gland cancers. Uro-oncologists employ a multidisciplinary approach to develop personalized treatment plans. Surgical interventions, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, and precision medicine are among the advanced techniques utilized to optimize patient outcomes. Through evidence based methodology, uro-oncologist strives to enhance survival rates and improve the overall well-being of individuals affected by urological cancers.

  • Kidney Cancer: Causes, Symptoms, and Optional Treatment

    Kidney cancer, medically known as renal cell carcinoma, originates in the kidneys - two bean-shaped organs located behind the abdominal organs. While renal cell carcinoma is the most common type of kidney cancer in adults, Wilms' tumor is more prevalent in young children. The incidence of kidney cancer is rising, partially due to increased use of imaging techniques like CT scans. Symptoms may include blood in urine, persistent back or side pain, loss of appetite, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, and fever. Risk factors include age, smoking, obesity, high blood pressure, long-term dialysis, certain inherited syndromes, and family history of kidney cancer. To reduce risk, quitting smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, and controlling high blood pressure are advised. Regular monitoring and discussions with a doctor are essential. Surgical options for kidney cancer typically involve removing the tumor and, in some cases, the entire affected kidney. Nephrectomy, either partial or radical, is commonly performed to excise the tumor. Partial nephrectomy aims to remove only the tumor while preserving the healthy kidney tissue, whereas radical nephrectomy involves removing the entire kidney along with surrounding tissues. The choice of surgical approach depends on factors such as tumor size, location, and stage, as well as the patient's overall health.

  • Prostate Cancer- Causes, Symptoms and Optional Treatment

    Prostate cancer, originating in the prostate gland, is among the most prevalent cancers. While some cases are slow-growing and confined to the prostate, others can be aggressive and spread rapidly. Early detection allows for the best treatment outcomes. Symptoms may include difficulty urinating, decreased force in the urine stream, blood in urine or semen, bone pain, unexplained weight loss, and erectile dysfunction. Risk factors include age, race (higher incidence in Black individuals), family history, and obesity. Complications may involve metastasis, incontinence, and erectile dysfunction. Prevention strategies include a healthy diet, regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, and discussing the potential use of medications with a doctor.

    Surgical treatment options for prostate cancer include radical prostatectomy, which involves the removal of the prostate gland, surrounding tissue, and sometimes nearby lymph nodes. There are different techniques for performing radical prostatectomy:

    Robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy: This minimally invasive approach uses a robotic system to assist in the surgical procedure. Small incisions are made in the abdomen, and surgical instruments attached to a robotic arm are guided by the surgeon using a console. This technique offers enhanced precision and shorter recovery times.

    Retropubic surgery: This traditional approach involves making a single long incision in the lower abdomen to access and remove the prostate gland. While less common today, it may be necessary in specific cases.
