Prostate Cancer

This is the most common type of cancer in men over the age of 50 and is the second-leading cause of cancer death. It is estimated that in the United States, almost 200,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year. Fortunately, there are several treatment methods available.

Bladder Cancer

The bladder is a hollow organ in the lower abdomen that stores urine. The kidneys filter unneeded substances and extra water from the blood, creating urine. The urine travels from the kidneys down the ureters (the tubes that drain the kidneys) into the bladder. Urine is released from the bladder through the urethra, which leads out of the body. Bladder cancer begins in the cells of the inner lining of the bladder but can also involve the ureters and kidneys.

Approximately 90% of bladder cancers are transitional cell carcinomas. Cancer confined to the lining of the bladder is superficial bladder cancer. In some cases, cancer can spread through the lining of the bladder. This is known as invasive bladder cancer.

Kidney Cancer

The kidneys’ main function is filtering blood coming in from the renal arteries to remove excess water, salt, and waste products. This combination of substances becomes urine. Kidney cancer is a rare form of cancer that starts in the kidneys when cells begin growing out of control. These cells can turn cancerous and spread, or metastasize, to other parts of the body. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common type of kidney cancer.

Testicular Cancer

The testicles are two glands located in the scrotum, and are responsible for producing testosterone and sperm. Testicular cancer is the most common type of cancer in males aged 15 to 34. The most common sign of testicular cancer is a lump or swelling in the testicle. The five-year survival rate after a diagnosis of testicular cancer is 95.1%. The majority of testicular cancers are found during exam, either by a doctor, or during a self-exam. It is important for men to perform a testicular self-exam monthly.
