Urologic Cancer Program

Specialists in Temple’s Urologic Cancer Program provide high-quality care for bladder, kidney, prostate, and testicular cancer. These urologic cancers are some of the most common cancers diagnosed. If found early, they're also some of the most successfully treated.

The most effective treatment begins with an accurate diagnosis. Our urology and cancer doctors combine specialized experience with the latest technology to accurately diagnose cancer and recommend the most effective treatment for your type of cancer. We understand the worries that can come with cancer and treatment. The best treatment has to account for how it will affect you, your family, work and day-to-day life. That's why our focus is on what's best for you, and your needs and goals.

Treatments and Services

At Temple, we offer a wide range of treatment options for urologic cancers. Our team works with you and develops the most effective approach based on your cancer and your needs. For instance, your urologist may recommend active surveillance, which monitors slow-growing prostate cancer with a blood test and physical exam every six months.

For cancer that requires immediate treatment, we offer nonsurgical treatments and advanced minimally invasive procedures, such as robotic-assisted surgery, which allows the surgeon to perform complex procedures with more precision. The robotic-assisted approach uses tiny incisions which may mean faster healing and less pain for you.

As one of the nation's top programs in robotic-assisted surgery for urologic cancer, Temple is where other hospitals turn to refer patients with challenging issues for surgery.
