As a patient we focus on understanding your individual condition. To do this, your genitourinary cancers doctor will find out:   

  • where your cancer is 

  • where it started (what type of cell) and

  • whether it is growing. 

We remove a small sample of tissue (a biopsy) so we can examine the cells under a microscope. This will help us find out whether your tumour is:
