A trend towards using adjunctive therapy judiciously as well as watchful follow-up using diagnostic aids like tumour markers, computerized tomography etc., in early genito-urinary neoplasms appears evident in recent years. This attempts to limit surgery to just as much as may be required to avoid irreversible body mutilation or loss of a valuable body faculty. A review of literature is hereby presented to project this trend as applied to the well known genito-urinary tumours. Considerable work is needed in the future to establish this philosophy of treatment for application in most early or controllable neoplastic cases.
