Penile Cancer Clinic

Cancer of the penis is rare, accounting for less than one percent of all cancers that occur in men. Most often, the cancer appears after a man reaches 60 years of age.

Experts at Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center understand penile cancer and work as a team to design the best treatment plan. A typical team is made up of surgical, medical, and radiation oncologists, as well as urologists, social workers, and nurses. Treatment plans may include:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy (biological therapy) - works to boost, direct, or restore your body's natural defenses against disease. In very early-stage penile cancer, it may be used in the form of a topical or ointment treatment.
  • Radiation therapy
  • Surgery - most common treatment for all stages of penile cancer
