Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Eighty-three cases of histologically diagnosed urinary tract cancers treated within 5 years at the Urology Unit of the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Enugu, among Nigerian Igbos have been reviewed. Whereas cancer of the prostatic gland is the commonest, urethral and ureteric cancers are the rarest. Treatment modality except for cancer of the prostate is largely surgical.
