Doctors can use surgery to remove: prostate cancer bladder cancer penile cancer kidney cancer Doctors think that one way to monitor patients more closely when they have surgery would be to use biomarkers. A biomarker is a substance in the body that can be measured. In this study, the researchers will look at people’s blood and urine samples before and after surgery to measure certain biomarkers. The aims of this study are to Find out if surgery of the prostate, bladder, penis and kidney causes changes to biomarkers in the body See if there is a link between changes in these biomarkers and complications after surgery See if there is a link between changes in these biomarkers and the cancer coming back You will not directly benefit from taking part in this study. If the researchers find that biomarkers are useful, it could help to improve the care and treatment...

International Penile Advanced Cancer Trial (International Rare Cancers Initiative Study) (InPACT) Penis cancer is a rare disease with a limited body of evidence on which to base the majority of management decisions. In 2011, 558 new cases of penis cancer were registered. Spread to lymph nodes in the groins and the pelvis is the most important prognostic factor: around 80% of patients who have a single involved lymph node in the groin will be alive at 5 years, but only 10% of patients who have involved deeper pelvic lymph nodes will survive. Conventional treatment for patients with positive groin nodes is surgery to remove all the affected nodes. Chemotherapy (CT) given before surgery (neoadjuvant CT) is shown to shrink affected nodes, but the impact of this approach on survival has not been assessed. Use of synchronous chemoRT (radiotherapy given at the same time as CT) has traditionally been in two...
