We are experts in the following areas:

  • Kidney cancer
  • Bladder cancer – we run a rapid access haematuria clinic
  • Prostate cancer – we provide the most advanced treatment options available - advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgery (keyhole surgery)

Diagnosis and management

We undertake the diagnosis and management of all Urological Cancers including Prostate Cancer; Renal Cancer; Bladder Cancer; Testicular Cancer and Penile Cancer for patients across Fife.

If you notice a change in your urological symptoms such as an increased need to urinate, straining when you urinate or a feeling that your bladder is not emptying properly or blood in your urine or any other concerning symptoms then in the first instance please contact your GP.  Where appropriate, your GP will then refer you to our Urology team for further assessment and management.

Safe, effective care

Our aim is to provide you safe effective care, given by the right people, at the right time in the right place.

As a cancer patient, you may receive treatment at Queen Margaret Hospital or Victoria Hospital Kirkcaldy or Edinburgh.  It may be that you will need to have parts of your treatment at a different hospital to where you were first diagnosed. Wherever your appointment takes place, we will work with you to ensure that your journey with us is as smooth as possible.

Clinical Nurse Specialists

Throughout your treatment, you will be supported by a clinical nurse specialist (CNS).
You may have treatments including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery, drug or biological therapies. We will make sure you understand the treatment options available to you and we will involve you in decisions about your care. You may also have the opportunity to take part in clinical trials.
