Coronavirus (COVID-19): visiting The Royal Marsden suspended

Coronavirus (COVID-19) latest: Visiting The Royal Marsden is still suspended, but we want to reassure our patients, their families and anyone worried about cancer during this difficult time that we are still delivering treatment - the hospital is open. Please see more information here about how we are keeping everyone safe.

Urology Unit

Our Urology Unit is a world-leader in the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with urological cancers

We have a multidisciplinary team of specialists who care for our patients and who discuss and agree on the plan of treatment for each individual patient. The MDT includes consultant urological surgeons, radiologists, clinical and medical oncologists and clinical nurse specialists.

Our clinicians provide expertise spanning the entire disease pathway from diagnosis to after care and, as a result, patients benefit from the very latest in cancer treatment using state-of-the-art technology.

We work closely with our partners The Institute of Cancer Research to ensure that our patients benefit from access to the latest drug discoveries by taking part in clinical trials. As well as this our radiology team has expertise in MRI and PET imaging techniques which can be used to aid in diagnosis, definitive treatment, early identification of relapse and in monitoring response to drug treatments.

A pre-habilitation programme is also in place to ensure patients are well-informed about their pathway, optimising their recovery by instilling good diet and exercise habits before treatment and empowering them to self-manage where appropriate.

We understand the impact that this cancer can have on men and as we treat the person rather than just their cancer, patients have access to a range of supportive services including specialist urology nursing input, acupuncture and psychosocial counselling to address survivorship needs.
