Abstract

Prostate cancer, bladder cancer, and kidney cancer represent the 3 most common urologic malignancies, and form a heterogenous group of disease processes, with a wide range of pathologic features. As a urologist, a strong understanding of the pathologic features of urologic malignancies is essential to prognosticate and counsel patients and to determine the most effective course of treatment. This review discusses the pathologic features of prostate, bladder, and kidney cancer, and examines how detailed pathologic reporting is critical to today's practicing urologist.
