Penile cancer is a rare but very aggressive neoplasm, associated with poor hygiene conditions, HPV infection and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), among other risk factors, whose incidence is higher in underdeveloped and developing countries. It presents as an ulcerated, infiltrative lesion and can affect the body of the penis, foreskin or glans. Usually diagnosed through biopsy of suspicious lesions and staged with physical examination, CT of the chest and abdomen, and MRI of the pelvis. Treatment, depending on the stage, involves surgery and systemic treatment with immunomodulators and chemotherapy.
