Spanish term or phrase: Help with sentence
Here is the sentence: La infección urinaria, y el proceso urinario obstructivo, ilustran la asociación inesperada de patología tumoral del tracto urinario, siendo el rabdomiosarcoma, la primera causa tumoral genitourinaria en pacientes pediátricos.

Two things:
1) Could 'proceso' be referring to the urinary *tract*?
2) I am having trouble putting the phrase 'la primera causa tumoral genitourinaria' into words.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. THANKS!

Explanation:
> 1) Could 'proceso' be referring to the urinary *tract*?
No, it's refering to the process in which the urinary tract gets obstructed.
It could be translated as "the urinary infection and the urinary tract obstructive process..."

> 2) I am having trouble putting the phrase 'la primera causa tumoral genitourinaria' into words.
This refers to "the first cause of genitourinary tumor"

HTH,
Grace.

The 2nd could also be \"the main cause...\"

Careful, \"proceso\" is not \"tract\".
It\'s refering to a condition that develops in time, gradually.
