Abstract

Penile cancer occurs quite seldom, mostly in men around 60 years of age. However penile squamous cell carcinoma is also observed in younger men. Etiology remains unclear but we can recognize some risk factors such as poor hygiene for example. The authors report a case of a patient who refused treatment in early stages of the disease and was treated only after disease progression. Applied surgical treatment, unfortunately proved to be insufficient and the patient was transferred to complete therapy at the oncology department. This case inspired us to recall the basic diagnostic and therapeutic methods used at the time of diagnosis of the penile tumor
