Urology

If you have recently been told you have or are suspected of having a Urological cancer you will have already met some of the people involved in your care. These health professionals work within a team which is called a specialist Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) which is based at the NNUH. The members of our Urology MDT are experts at treating and managing Urological cancer and are involved with your investigations, diagnosis and treatment.

We also have a Nurse Specialist who deals with Prostate cancer specifically. Helen uses her expert knowledge of Prostate cancer to facilitate the Prostate cancer pathway from new referral to diagnostic investigation enabling patients to have a smoother journey.

Conditions Treated:

  • Prostate Cancer
  • Bladder Cancer
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Testicular Cancer
  • Penile Cancer

Treatment for Urological cancers may include a combination of Surgery, Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy; however treatment will depend on the extent and location of the cancer at diagnosis.
