At the Lifespan Cancer Institute, your safety is our top priority. As experts in cancer, we also know completing a treatment plan is associated with the best outcomes for patients. That is why we worked closely with our infection prevention and infectious diseases teams to be able to provide the care you need in a safe environment.

Comprehensive Genitourinary Treatment

The Genitourinary Multidisciplinary Clinic, a program of the Lifespan Cancer Institute, is entirely dedicated to the compassionate care of patients with urologic malignancies. Our program is certified by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative and accredited by the prestigious Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.

Collectively, genitourinary cancers, particularly prostate and bladder cancer, are among the most common form of malignancies, affecting nearly half a million Americans each year. We take a team-based, comprehensive approach, bringing together nationally recognized leaders in the treatment and research of these diseases throughout all phases of the patient’s illness.

At diagnosis, our patients come in for one visit and see physicians in all disciplines, including surgical oncology, medical oncology, diagnostic imaging, critical care medicine, radiation oncology and palliative care. After this initial visit, our team meets with the patient to present a recommended plan of care. Our experienced staff coordinates treatment, as well as all necessary follow-up and rehabilitation, so that patients can focus all their energies on recovery.

Symptoms of Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer develops when cells change (mutate) and begin growing uncontrollably. In time, they form a tumor.
