Genitourinary Pathology

UPMC Content 3

The kidneys and the bladder — and, in men, the prostate and testicles — are susceptible to a variety of conditions.

The prostate, in particular, can begin to change as a man ages. By age 50, an enlarged prostate is common and your doctor may choose to biopsy this tissue if it is enlarging rapidly or causing many symptoms.

Other diseases can also affect this system, however.

The Role of the Pathologist

Doctors cannot diagnose infections or cancer without sending a tissue sample to the pathology lab.

Our pathologists are experts in identifying the diseases, infections, and tumors that affect the prostate and other organs of the genitourinary system.

Their diagnoses help your doctor create a treatment plan for your situation.
