What is genitourinary cancer?

Genitourinary (GU) cancer refers to cancers that are found in the urinary system and the male reproductive system. GU cancers include bladder and kidney cancers (found in men and women), as well as tumours found in the prostate, penis, and testicles (just in men). As GU cancers include different cancer types, symptoms and risk factors can vary.1
