Abstract

A retrospective review of genito-urinary tumors examined histopathologically in Qatar during the period 1998-2004 showed bladder cancer to be the most common followed by prostate, renal, testicularrenal pelvis and urethral tumours in order of decreasing prevalence. The apparent increasing annual prevalence of some tumors is discussed and the findings are compared with those reported from neighbouring countries and in literature from the West.
