Rare urologic tumors

Academic Article


  • Purpose of review: Management of genitourinary malignancy is likely to encompass a large portion of most of the urologist's practice. The challenge for the modern urologist is not only in understanding the management of commonly seen genitourinary malignancies, but also in recognizing unusual variants and their differences in management. This is evermore important as new technologies have refined the ability to identify rare entities. This review presents a brief overview of the various genitourinary malignancy subtypes seen within urology. Recent findings: All major organ subtypes are highlighted along with an overview of the current understanding of their associated malignancies. An update on the current state management paradigms as well as future directions is also outlined. Summary: After reading this review, the urologist should have a deeper understanding of the breadth of disorders in genitourinary oncology and a clearer approach to the management of these problems. Additionally, ongoing avenues for research are highlighted.
