Testicular and Penile Cancer

Prostate CancerKidney CancerBladder CancerTesticular and Penile Cancer

As experts in genitourinary cancer, the team at Advocate Christ Medical Center has experience diagnosing and treating rare cancers, including testicular and penile cancers.

Testicular cancer typically affects men under age 40, and is far more common among Caucasian men than men of other races.  Treatment at Christ Medical Center includes surgical removal of the affected testicle, followed by reconstructive surgery.  Radiation therapy or chemotherapy also may be used.  Testicular cancer is one of the most curable types of cancer.

Penile cancer is very rare in the U.S., although it is more common in other parts of the world.  Men who were not circumcised in infancy have a higher risk of developing penile cancer.  Treatment at Christ Medical Center includes surgery, as well as non-surgical approaches such as cryoablation.  Reconstructive surgery by our skilled reconstructive urologists can restore appearance for many men.

At Christ Medical Center, our multidisciplinary approach means that men with testicular or penile cancer receive care from a team of specialists who bring different expertise to each patient's treatment plan.  Our team includes urologists (who provide both surgical and medical treatment), radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and reconstructive urology surgeons, as well as pathologists, oncology nurses and other care providers.
