Nearly 16,000 people die from a urological cancer each year, and about 5,000 more die with a urological cancer as a contributory cause. This report presents the latest available data on deaths from urological cancers in England.
Urological cancers include penile, prostate, testicular, kidney, renal pelvis and ureter, and bladder cancers.
The aim of the report is to help end of life care commissioners and providers improve planning and service delivery in line with the needs and wishes of patients.
People dying with a urological cancer have specific end of life care needs. The report highlights variations by cancer type, age, sex, region, place of death and socioeconomic status, which helps us understand those needs better.
The report also includes information on hospital admission costs in the last year of life and how they vary by type of urological cancer.
