Urethral Cancer Treatment

At Fox Chase Cancer Center, our multidisciplinary medical team works closely to assess your urethral cancer and help you understand your options so that you can make an informed decision about your treatment.

Our skilled, multispecialty genitourinary oncology team meets regularly to review patient cases and map out a personalized treatment plan. We strive to treat your condition in the least invasive way possible with innovative surgical techniques and combination therapies that give you the best chance of a successful outcome.


Surgery is the primary treatment option for cancer of the urethra. Treatment depends on the type, size, stage and location of the lesion. Urethral cancer may require aggressive surgical removal or less invasive procedures, depending on the location, stage and type of tumor. In these cases, careful surgical planning and a combination of therapies may preserve the bladder and its function.

Urologic surgeons at Fox Chase Cancer Center are regional and national leaders in performing complex surgeries for patients with urethral cancer.

Clinical Trials

Our doctors are also actively involved in developing new therapies for treating cancer. Through clinical trials, we are able to offer our patients access to promising treatments and experimental therapies that may not be available elsewhere. Ask your Fox Chase doctor if a clinical trial is right for you.
