Services & Treatment
If you or your primary care doctor suspects you may be at risk for urologic cancer, first confirm an accurate diagnosis with testing. Your doctor may recommend:
- A physical exam to detect abnormalities
- Laboratory testing, including a urinalysis or blood test
- Diagnostic imaging, such as a cystoscopy, CT scan, ultrasound or MRI
- Prostate biopsy, including via Garnet Health’s UroNav Fusion Biopsy System. This innovative technology offers patients a less painful and invasive option for prostate cancer biopsies by using MRI combined with ultrasound to produce three-dimensional images of the prostate. Your urologist can get a sharper, more precise image of the prostate, which helps identify tumors at early stages and enables more targeted biopsies.
When our diagnostic imaging department confirms a diagnosis, your compassionate care team will partner with you on the next steps for treatment. A typical course of care may include:
- Intravesical therapy
- Radiation therapy
- Targeted therapy medications
Garnet Health also understands the emotional toll of a urologic care diagnosis. That’s why we provide spiritual and emotional counseling, as well as cancer support groups to ensure you’re not alone during your cancer journey. Your psychological health is just as important as your physical health, and meaningful support is crucial to your overall well-being. In addition to quality interactions with the Garnet Health team, we connect you with others who have had a similar experience or diagnosis and can offer encouragement and a compassionate ear.
