Prostate, Renal, Bladder and Testicular Cancers Team

At UNM Cancer Center, our Genitourinary Cancers Multidisciplinary Team has the expertise to treat cancers of all the organs of the genitourinary system. These include cancers of the prostate, bladder, kidneys, testis, penis, and adrenal glands. Comprising medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pathologists, our team offers the latest, most advanced treatments, including novel immunotherapies, targeted therapies, and personalized cancer therapy.

The order in which you get your care can make a great difference in your cancer outcome. So, our team works closely with other teams, including cancer genetic counselors and cancer nutritionists, to create the best plan for you. Our team also conducts groundbreaking research to learn better ways to treat these cancers.

“The idea is to stimulate an immune response to the cancer. By using the body’s immune response to viruses, we incidentally create an immune response to the cancer.”
