Financial toxicity is a relatively new term to the healthcare profession. The concept of not having health insurance or having huge costs for medical care not covered by health insurance can cause financial problems. It may lead to debt and even to personal bankruptcy and has received ample attention regarding urologic cancers. Several studies show that cancer patients and survivors are more likely to have financial toxicity than people without cancer.
