Genitourinary cancer

Urology BadgeEarly detection of cancer-causing cells is essential to improving chances for recovery. That's why the genitourinary cancer team at the UK Markey Cancer Center offers comprehensive screening programs to detect kidney, prostate, testicular and bladder cancers in their early stages. The team includes expert urologists, medical oncologists and radiation therapists who work closely with pathologists to provide coordinated patient care.

Markey has provided state-of-the-art cancer care for more than 20 years, and we are proud to be the only cancer center in Kentucky designated by the National Cancer Institute. For the last five years, Markey Cancer Center has been nationally recognized as a top 50 cancer center by U.S. News and World Report.

Specialties: Special expertise among our faculty allows prostate and bladder cancers to be treated with organ preservation. Younger men with prostate cancer may prefer nerve-preserving prostate surgery, which has a high likelihood of urinary continence and sexual function.

Markey Cancer Center is NCI-designated

The UK Markey Cancer Center was first designated by the National Cancer Institute in 2013 – a distinction that recognizes our extraordinary ability to provide world-class care for our patients. We are the only NCI-designated cancer center in Kentucky and one of only 71 in the nation.
