Urinary Cancer

Mouth Cancer

Mouth (oral) cancer is most common in the lips or the tongue, and less frequently occurs on the floor of the mouth, cheek lining, gums, or roof of the mouth (palate). Cigarette or tobacco smoking is associated with 70 - 80% of mouth (oral) cancer cases. Some occurrences of mouth cancer are attributed to bad oral hygiene and sometimes mouth inflammation. It rarely causes hematuria because the blood from mouth cancer problems is so far from the moment urination occurs.

Esophageal Cancer

Esophageal (Esophagus) cancer is a relatively uncommon form of cancer and occurs in the older population. Esophageal cancer is not typically considered a urinary cancer because it is relatively far from the moment urination happens. Common causes of esophageal cancer are:

Kidney (Renal) Cancer

The kidneys are a very important part of the urinary tract. Kidney cancer most commonly occurs as Renal Cell Carcinoma. It occurs most often in men ages 50-70. People at risk are those with kidney cancer in the family, smokers and drinkers. See more detail on Kidney Cancer

Ureteral Cancer

Urethral cancer is a rare cancer (more common in women than men) in which cancerous cells form in the tube that carries urine from the bladder to outside the body. Cancer of the urethra may accompany tumors of the bladder. Tumors of the urethra typically occur along with tumors elsewhere in the urinary tract. See more detail on Urethra Cancer

Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is a type of cancer that is difficult to diagnose early because it shows no symptoms and is often found in later stages.

Bile Duct Cancer

Bile duct cancer (Cholangiocarcinoma) is a cancerous (malignant) growth in one of the ducts that carries bile from the liver to the small intestine. Bile duct tumors usually spread slowly. At risk are older populations (over 65). Unfortunately, by the time the cancer is found, it had already spread because it has no physical symptoms in its early stages.

Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer refers to any of several types of malignant growths of the urinary bladder. It is a disease in which abnormal cells multiply without control in the bladder. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Bladder Cancer is available below.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate gland cancer affects the person's reproductive system. Thanks to aggressive testing in recent years it is commonly diagnosed before it has a chance to spread and show physical symptoms like hematuria. It is important to get regular checkups to prevent complications from this urinary tract cancer.

Penis Cancer

Cancer of the penis can occur anywhere along the penile shaft, but most are on the foreskin or head (glans). It is usually a slow-growing cancer and is curable if discovered early.
