Carcinoma of the prostate is the most common cancer that afflicts men. Historically, men would present with advanced disease; however with advances in screening techniques, we are now diagnosing the disease at earlier and curable stages. Recently, PSA screening has come under fire by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force; however, the American Urologic Association, as well as our specialists, still support and promote PSA screening for this potentially fatal disease.
The Department of Urology at the University of Toledo is the first and only center in the region routinely using MRI as part of the diagnostic strategy for prostate cancer. Our pioneering work has saved countless men unnecessary prostate biopsies and has allowed us to focus treatment on those who need it most.
Our fellowship-trained specialists at The University of Toledo Department of Urology offer the latest, cutting edge in surgical, radiation and medical therapy for men diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Most kidney cancers in this day and age are incidentally diagnosed as small growths on either kidney. We now know that removal of the mass, and not the entire kidney, benefits patients by curing their cancer while preserving as much normal, healthy kidney tissue as possible. Our fellowship-trained physicians utilize the most recent updates in minimally invasive technologies, such as laparoscopy, robotics and percutaneous ablation to cure this deadly cancer and get you back on your feet with minimal pain and scarring.

While testicular cancer is very rare, it is still one of the most common solid tumors diagnosed in men younger than the age of 35. Most men diagnose the disease by self exam when they feel a lump or bump on their testicle.
