#### Summary points Penile cancer can have devastating mutilating and psychological consequences for those affected. It is important for clinicians to be aware of the condition. Differentiation of benign genital dermatoses from premalignant penile lesions and early stage penile cancer, with prompt specialist referral, usually prevents progression, improves prognosis, and results in improved functional and cosmetic outcomes for affected men. A retrospective single centre study of all penile… Expand

TLDR
A review of the scope of penile lesions and neoplasms that may present in a primary care setting is presented to assist in developing a differential diagnosis if such a patient is encountered, as well as for practitioners who care for their sexual partners. Expand
Benign male genital dermatoses
TLDR
This clinical update provides a guide to normal anatomical variations of the penis, how to recognise and manage common benign male genital dermatoses, and when to refer for specialist opinion. Expand
The management of penile intraepithelial neoplasia (PeIN): clinical and histological features and treatment of 345 patients and a review of the literature.
TLDR
Clinical management of PeIN can be rationally optimized with excellent outcomes, and circumcision being the mainstay is important. Expand

TLDR
Urologic dermatology can be a diagnostic challenge for sexual medicine physicians and this review simplifies the diagnostic approach and emphasizes pathologic features of each condition to guide management. Expand
Premalignant male genital dermatoses
TLDR
The common precancerous states that can lead to penile carcinoma are explored and share identical histologic features of squamous cell carcinoma in situ, but their clinical features differ. Expand
Nicorandil-induced penile ulceration: a case report
TLDR
Nicorandil-induced ulceration is a rare complication; however, it should not be missed in a clinical setting and if there is any doubt about the cause, referral to dermatology or urology for consideration of biopsy is essential. Expand
Intracardiac metastasis of squamous cell carcinoma of the penis
TLDR
A 79-year-old patient who presented a metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the penis with intracardiac dissemination with sudden respiratory distress and died, and the autopsy findings showed metastatic disease into the cardiac right chambers, pulmonary tumoral thrombi, and pulmonary hilar involvement.

Penile cancer--prevention and premalignant conditions.
TLDR
Firm guidelines cannot be formulated for the treatment of premalignant conditions, although preventative measures, such as reducing human papillomavirus transmission, could become strategic health targets. Expand
Referrals into a dedicated British penile cancer centre and sources of possible delay
TLDR
Nearly one-fifth of patients with penile cancer are first referred to specialities other than Urology, which sometimes delays diagnosis, potentially affecting overall prognosis. Expand

TLDR
Thirty men with biopsy‐proven premalignant or malignant squamous cell lesions of the penis were treated, producing results that are clinically equal and cosmetically and functionally far superior to partial penectomy. Expand
Etiology of Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Penis
TLDR
The evidence on risk factors for penile cancer suggests that preventive measures that could be considered include prevention of phimosis, treatment of chronic inflammatory conditions, limiting PUVA treatment, smoking cessation and prophylactic prevention of HPV infection. Expand
Quality of life for patients treated for penile cancer.
TLDR
(partial) penectomy and lymphadenectomy were associated with more problems with orgasm, body image, life interference and urination, and additional longitudinal studies are warranted to evaluate individual changes with time in these outcomes. Expand
Reconstructive surgery for invasive squamous carcinoma of the glans penis.
TLDR
Gansectomy appears to be an oncologically safe and effective procedure for patients with glans-confined squamous cell tumours that preserves maximum phallic length and results in a very satisfactory cosmetic penile appearance after reconstruction. Expand

TLDR
Topical chemotherapy agents are moderately effective first-line therapy in the treatment of penile CIS and should remain a first-liners in a large contemporary series in a supranetwork centre. Expand
