Urologic Cancers (Prostate, Adrenal Gland, Bladder, Kidney, Testes, and Ureters)

If you’re facing a cancer diagnosis, where do you turn? The Lefcourt Family Cancer Treatment and Wellness Center at Englewood Health offers comprehensive cancer care, from advanced screening to survivorship programs.

Urologists in the Englewood Health Physician Network diagnose cancer and offer the latest minimally invasive approaches for surgery. We work closely with other experts in the cancer center to provide radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and supportive services.

Among the cancers we treat are:

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the United States.

In most cases, prostate cancer grows slowly. Quickly and accurately diagnosing prostate cancer allows your cancer care team to plan personalized treatments to get you back on the road to better health.

The cancer treatment team at Englewood Health is committed to helping you stay as healthy as possible before, during, and after prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment. We offer:

  • Personalized care from fellowship-trained physicians working together on a multidisciplinary team, including an emphasis on shared decision making between men and their doctors
  • Access to cutting-edge treatments and technologies
  • Early screening and advanced diagnostic capabilities, such as ultrasound fusion biopsy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Genetic counseling for high-risk individuals
  • State-of-the-art radiation oncology technology and infusion center
  • Surgical expertise using the latest techniques, including robotic surgery and other minimally invasive techniques

Kidney Cancer

Your kidneys are two bean-shaped organs that filter waste and fluid from your blood. Kidney cancer (also called renal cancer) arises when abnormal cells grow in the kidneys.

There are three types of kidney cancer:

  • Renal cell carcinoma is the most common type. It develops in the lining of tubes within the kidney. This type accounts for about 90 percent of kidney cancers.
  • Transitional cell cancer arises in the cells at the center of the kidney.
  • Wilms Tumor is a type of kidney cancer that affects children.

When detected early, tumors are generally small and contained within the kidney. In more advanced cases, tumors can spread beyond the kidney and into other areas of the body.

Regardless of your diagnosis, the kidney cancer team at Englewood Health offers effective treatments to help you heal.

Our urologic oncology team specializes in advanced therapies for kidney cancer. When you come to Englewood Health, you benefit from:

  • Expertise: Your care team includes board-certified and fellowship-trained doctors who specialize in treating kidney cancer.
  • Team approach: Our urologists work closely with radiation oncologists and medical oncologists. Together, they create the most effective treatment plan for each patient.
  • Precise diagnostic techniques: We use the most advanced methods to accurately detect tumors.
  • Advanced treatments: Our skilled team uses a variety of techniques to treat kidney cancer, depending on each patient’s needs. Treatments include active surveillance, cryotherapy, robotic surgery, and immunotherapy.
  • Genetic testing: If you have a family history of kidney cancer, our genetic counselors can screen you and your relatives. They’ll check for gene mutations that increase your risk and need for more frequent screening.
  • Clinical trials: We offer access to leading-edge research studies on kidney cancer treatments.
