Treatment of the various malignant diseases arising primarily from the genitourinary system has undergone considerable change in recent decades and, in many areas, remains in a state of flux or controversy. However, as increasing cooperative efforts have developed among many disciplines (urology, pathology, radiology, radiotherapy and oncology), the emergence of multimodal therapy has significantly improved the outlook for patients with many of these diseases.
