Surgical treatment of penile cancer analysis of 82 patients

, : Surgical treatment of penile cancer analysis of 82 patients. Acta Academiae Medicinae Hubei 11(3): 262-265

From 1959 to 1984, 82 cases of carcinoma of the penis were treated by surgery in our hospital. 13 of them were treated by partial penectomy, 36 by total penectomy and 33 by total penectomy plus inguinal lymphatic dissection. The overall 5-years survival rate was 71.9%. The study showed that incidence of the penile cancer is closely related to phimosis, redundant prepuce and neglect of personal hygiene. It has been demonstrated that partial penectomy is sufficient for obtaining tumor-free margin in patients with the lesion limited at the glans and total penectomy is indicated if the tumour involves the corpora. Routine lymph node biopsy is proposed when adenopathy is present. Inguinal lymphatic dissection should be performed only if tumor is present in the biopsy. The extent of primary lesion, presence or absence of inguinal lymph node metastasis and proper initial treatment have a great influence on the prognosis of the cancer.
