Bladder cancer is characterized by abnormal growth of cells resulting in the formation of a tumor, in the bladder. Cancer usually begins urothelial cells that line the inside of the bladder growing abnormally. Bladder cancer can spread to tissue around it. In extreme cases, it can spread to distant parts of the body. However, instances of bladder cancer are rare.
Penile cancer is abnormal growth cells found on the skin or in the tissues of the penis. It usually starts on the skin of the penis and spreads inside. Squamous cell carcinomas is the most common penile cancer. The exact causes of this condition are not known. Not being circumcised and tobacco smoking are considered as potential risk factors.
Prostate cancer occurs when the cells in prostate grow abnormally. It is a common cancer in men. Prostate cancer spreads very slowly and is not life threatening in most of the cases. In cases of low grade prostate cancer, there is a little or no difference in the life expectancy. However, some types of prostate cancers spread rapidly and can prove lethal if not managed appropriately.
Testicular cancer is the cancer that occurs in testicles. It starts when the germ cells (cells that produce immature sperm) grow abnormally. Testicular cancer is a rare cancer and can be treated if it spreads to a few parts around it. The causes of testicular cancer are unclear. The risk factors include abnormal testicle development, an undescended testicle and family history of the cancer.
Ureteral cancer is cancer in ureter, a tube that carries urine from kidneys to the bladder. It starts in the cells that line the inside of the ureter. This is an uncommon cancer.
Patients who have or had bladder cancer or kidney cancer are at a higher risk of getting ureteral cancer.
