Doctors in the urology department at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in Atlanta, diagnose and treat cancers of the male and female urinary tract system and the male reproductive organs. This cancer specialty focuses on male-only cancers, including prostate, penile and testicular cancer. In addition, urologists work with men and women with kidney or bladder cancer diagnoses. Urologists at CTCA® are doctors who have completed post-graduate training in general surgery and clinical urology and are experienced in addressing the concerns faced by patients with these cancers.
A thorough and accurate cancer diagnosis is the first step in developing a prostate cancer treatment plan. The urologists at our cancer center in Atlanta conduct a full review through patient medical records and family histories. In addition, urologists may perform a physical exam and order tests, such as a blood work or an ultrasound, to make an informed diagnosis. Your integrative team of cancer experts use advanced diagnostic tests and tools to evaluate the disease and craft your individualized treatment. This information helps urologists at our Georgia hospital determine the cancer’s type and stage in providing a diagnosis.
