Urologic Oncology

Urology is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on cancers of the male and female urinary tract system, including the kidneys, adrenal glands, ureters, urinary bladder, and urethra, as well as the male reproductive organs, including the testicles, prostate, and penis. 

The GW Cancer Center’s Urologic Oncology Program houses a tissue bank for these types of cancers to use when testing new treatments, which will translate into more individualized medicine resulting in improved treatment plans.
