Genitourinary Cancers

Genitourinary Cancer affects millions of people worldwide. Their treatment requires a collaborative effort between various disciplines of medicine.  At Weill Cornell Medical College/New York Presbyterian Hospital, patients with genitourinary malignancies can expect individualized treatment based on a team approach ranging in solid tumors, metastases, rising PSA, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, recurrence, high risk, and other diagnoses. Your Radiation Oncologist will work with a team of physicians from other disciplines, mainly your urologist, to offer you the best available treatment. 

We offer state of the art equipment and software to deliver the latest radiotherapy techniques, such as Image-guided Radiation therapy and Brachytherapy. We also offer participation in clinical trials designed to evaluate the effectiveness of newer and promising treatments.  Eligibility for these trials will be determined during the discussion of treatment options with the radiation oncologist.

Side Effects

The side effects you may experience will depend on the area being treated, the type of radiation used and whether or not you also received chemotherapy. Before treatment, your doctor will describe what you can expect.

Some patients experience minor or no side effects and can continue their normal routines.

If at any time you develop side effects, tell your doctor or nurse. He or she can give you medicine to help.
