Prostate cancer only affects men because it develops in the prostate gland—a small, walnut-shaped organ located just below the bladder that is part of the male reproductive system.
Cancer can also affect the bladder, which is often preceded by urinary conditions that may feel like a urinary infection.
Our kidneys work to remove waste from the body in the form of urine. When a cancerous condition exists, urination flow or control may be impacted, which can be an early indicator.
Ureteral cancer, and Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma (UTUC), are cancers that can occur anywhere in the inner linings of the kidney, ureters, bladder, and urethra.
