A urologic oncologist is a medical doctor with specialised training in diagnosing and treating cancers associated with the male and female urinary tract, and the male reproductive organs. These organs include the bladder, the kidneys, the prostate, the penis and testicles. Urological cancers are relatively common, with prostate, bladder and kidney cancers among the 10 most common cancers diagnosed. Prostate cancer
is the most commonly seen cancer among men. Urologic oncologists are trained to treat malignancies of the urinary tract using various tools and technologies designed to treat the disease while simultaneously sparing healthy tissue. A urologic oncologist will work closely with other specialists to tailor treatments to the specific cancer; and thereby help reduce side effects and address issues of sexual function. Narayana Health has effectively revolutionised the treatment of localised urological cancers with methods that have limited/minimal side effects.
