UCAN Stands for Urological CANcers

  • There are five urological cancers: prostate, bladder, kidney, testicular and cancer of the penis. They mainly affect men, although women can suffer from kidney and bladder cancers. Urological cancers are more common than many people realise, and account for 1 in 3 of all cancers in men and 1 in 5 of all cancers in men and women.
