Penile cancer is cancer in the tissue of the penis — it is a very rare type of cancer.
If you are over 50, and your penis is uncircumcised, you have the highest risk of developing penile cancer. If you have a history of genital warts and HPV, you have a higher risk of developing penile cancer.
If there is a change in the way your penis looks, works, or smells, it’s a good idea to make an appointment with us.
If you have penile cancer, the people you have sex with should be screened for other forms of cancer caused by HPV — such as cancers of the cervix, vulva, and anus.
