Adrenal Cancer

Adrenal cancer is caused by tumors in the adrenal glands, which produce hormones. When cells in the adrenal gland cause an oversupply of hormones, a tumor can result.

Bladder Cancer

A malignant tumor in the bladder usually starts in the cells that line the bladder. A tumor can also be started by cells that manufacture mucus and other fluids.

Kidney Cancer

It's common for fluid-filled cysts to form within kidneys, and these are usually benign (noncancerous) and don't need treatment. It's rare that solid tumors form within the kidneys.

Penile Cancer

Penile cancer occurs when malignant cancer cells develop in the tissues of the penis. The majority of penile cancers develop as a type of skin cancer, which can be cured when detected early. The most common early symptom of penile cancer is a change in the skin of the penis, especially in the head (glans) or foreskin.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer affects the prostate, which is a gland approximately the size of a walnut located just below the bladder in men. It plays a role in urine control for men and promotes proper sexual function by contributing fluid to the ejaculate. Prostate cancer is treatable if diagnosed early. 

Testicular Cancer

Testicles (also called testes or gonads) are part of the male sex glands located under the penis. Germ cells, located within the testicles, produce immature sperm that remains stored in the testes until it is ejaculated. Testicular cancer has a very high cure rate when detected early.
