Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. It's estimated that in 2014, by the time it's diagnosed, 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. The reason for this large number of diagnoses is that it can often be found early when it's still treatable. However, many people aren't aware that prostate cancer can also develop through the tissues around the prostate and be undetectable at a young age.

Kidney cancer

Kidney cancer is a cancer of the kidneys that usually shows up as a mass in one or both of the kidneys. It usually occurs in adults over 60 years old, but can happen in anyone at any age. 

Ureter cancer

Ureter cancer is a rare and often deadly complication of urologic diseases including kidney failure, which is the most common cause. The primary symptom of ureter cancer is bloody urine.

Urinary tract infection (UTI)

UTIs are common infections that infect the urinary tract. UTIs are caused by bacteria that enter through your urethra and can be spread during sitting on public toilets, or when you have a catheter in place.
