Penile Cancer

Penile Cancer and its Treatment

Overview

Penectomy: Surgical removal of entire cancerous penis is called Total penectomy. However partial penectomy is more commonly done procedure, in which only a part of penis is removed enabling the patient to urinate in standing position. We also frequently perform various penile sparing procedures such as glansectomy (removal of glans penis only) and excision of cancerous lesion alone in case of very small tumors.

Groin node dissections (Complete ilioinguinal or modified inguinal node dissection) : Penile cancer usually spreads to groin nodes followed by pelvic lymph nodes. These nodes are surgically removed depending on the extent of nodal involvement.
