Treatment for bladder, kidney, testicular, and prostate cancer in Colorado Springs is one of the urologic services we offer at Pikes Peak Urology. Often, our urologists work with a team of medical specialists to provide the highest level of coordinated cancer care.
Cancers of the urinary tract are quite common in the United States. According to the Urology Care Foundation, prostate cancer is the #2 cause of death among men in the United States with almost 240,000 new cases diagnosed each year and over 29,000 deaths in 2013.
Bladder cancer is the 6th most common cancer in the United States and is highly associated with smoking.
Kidney cancers are less common but still one of the top ten most common cancers in America. Kidney cancer will sometimes present at a more advanced stage because these masses are relatively symptom free until they become more advanced. With the increasing use of x-ray, ultrasound and CT scanning techniques, many kidney tumors are found in a serendipitous or accidental fashion. This allows early treatment at a lower stage with less invasive techniques and a higher chance of cure.
Testicular cancer is typically a disease of younger men with a peak age of incidence of 15-35 years. There are an estimated 7,000 new cases diagnosed every year in the United States and even advanced cases have a high cure rate given modern multi-modal therapy.
