Diagnosis

A variety of tests may be used to diagnose genitourinary cancers, depending on the site of the suspected cancer. They include:

  • physical exam
  • urine test
  • intravenous pyelogram (for visualizing the kidney or bladder on x-rays)
  • cystoscopy (examination of the inside of the bladder using a thin lighted tube)
  • blood test to assess kidney function or to look for tumor markers for testicular cancer
  • CT scan
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • ultrasound

A diagnosis of cancer is confirmed through a biopsy of tumor tissue. All of these tests are available at the Weill Cornell Cancer Center.
