“The studies highlighted today present clinicians with a number of thought-provoking and potentially practice-changing implications,” said Charles J. Ryan, MD, moderator of today’s presscast, “Many of which can be integrated into our daily clinical practice and future research efforts.”

Genitourinary cancers include those of the prostate, kidney, bladder, and testis, as well as less common cancers such as those of the penis, ureters, and other urinary organs. In 2014, more than 385,000 people in the United States are expected to be diagnosed with genitourinary cancers, with an estimated 60,500 deaths. The most common genitourinary cancer is prostate cancer, which according to estimates, will be diagnosed in 233,000 men in the United States in 2014 and claim more than 29,400 lives.[i]

The 2014 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium is co-sponsored by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and the Society of Urologic Oncology (SUO).
