Genitourinary Cancers

The world-renowned experts at the OSUCCC – James are transforming the way genitourinary cancers are prevented, detected, treated and, yes, cured.

Today, cancer is no longer solely defined by location or even by stage. We know there is no routine cancer, and there are no routine genitourinary cancers.

Genitourinary cancers are complex diseases. Each patient’s cancer is different, behaving differently in the bodies they’re in and calling for a tailored, individualized treatment plan for each patient.

To deliver the most effective genitourinary cancer detection and treatment, our nationally renowned experts identify and understand cancer at the biologic and genetic levels, unlocking the molecular code of a patient’s disease and pinpointing what makes each cancer grow — then discovering what stops it.

Our team of genitourinary cancer subspecialists spans a broad range of disciplines: from medical surgical and radiation oncologists to urologists, molecular and biological pathologists, genetic scientists and more — all specializing in a specific type of genitourinary cancer (and only genitourinary cancer) research, prevention, detection, treatment and cure.  

It’s that subspecialization and singular focus that enable us to discover, develop and deliver the most targeted therapies for each individual genitourinary cancer patient.  

And that means our collective expertise leads to improved outcomes, faster responses, fewer side effects and more hope for cancer patients everywhere.

Kidney Cancer

About 64,000 people receive a kidney cancer diagnosis every year. Men develop the disease more than women. Most people who get the disease are usually older, with an average age of 64 at diagnosis. Because kidney cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in the country, the OSUCCC – James is consistently paving the way in learning more about what causes kidney cancer — leading to even more highly targeted prevention, care and treatment.

Prostate Cancer

In the United States, one in every five men will get prostate cancer, with about 230,000 men diagnosed every year. Prostate cancer tends to grow very slowly, and almost all cases begin in the prostate gland cells, called adenocarcinomas. At the OSUCCC – James, our prostate cancer subspecialists are world-renowned cancer experts who focus solely on prostate cancer and who reach across medical disciplines to design the very best treatment plan and therapies to target each patient’s specific cancer.

Testicular Cancer

Most testicular cancer forms in the germ cells. Testicular cancer occurs more often in young and middle-aged men and is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men 20 to 35 years old. More than 8,800 new cases of the cancer are diagnosed in the United States each year. At the OSUCCC – James, cancer research experts focus on studying testicular cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.
