Palliative care in urology

Urological malignancies, especially prostate cancer, are relatively common, but patients may live many years before eventually dying of the disease. Caring for these patients is an important role for urologists, although medical training often does not adequately prepare urologists for the palliative care of patients with advanced malignancies. Palliative care is no longer equated with end-of-life care, but rather integrated throughout illness, even when cure is impossible. This article focuses on the various palliative treatments available for the 3 most common urological malignancies: prostate, bladder, and renal cancers
