Kidney, Bladder, Prostate Cancer
Cancer is a disease in which abnormal cells divide uncontrollably and destroy body tissue. If cancer cells develop in the Kidneys, Bladder, or Prostate it becomes organ-specific. This cancer typically affects older adults. It's usually diagnosed early when it's still treatable. It's likely to recur, so follow-up tests are typically recommended. The most common symptom is blood in the urine. Treatments include surgery, biological therapy, and chemotherapy.
Symptoms of cancer are as below:
- Blood in the urine (haematuria), which may cause urine to appear bright red or dark coloured
- Frequent urination
- Painful urination
- Back pain
- Increasing age
- Exposure to certain chemicals
- Previous cancer treatment
- Chronic bladder inflammation
- Personal or family history of cancer

Frequently Asked Questions
Is kidney cancer aggressive?
Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is the most common kidney cancer diagnosis. It can be aggressive and grow faster than other kidney cancers.
What is the main cause of bladder cancer?
Smoking is the single biggest risk factor for bladder cancer. This is because tobacco contains cancer-causing (carcinogenic) chemicals. If you smoke for many years, these chemicals pass into your bloodstream and are filtered by the kidneys into your urine.
What is the main cause of prostate cancer?
The underlying factor linking diet and prostate cancer is probably hormonal. Fats stimulate increased production of testosterone and other hormones, and testosterone acts to speed the growth of prostate cancer. High testosterone levels may stimulate dormant prostate cancer cells into activity.
