Penile cancer is a rare form of urological cancer. In the United Kingdom, annually there are around 600 men diagnosed with penile cancer.
Penile cancer can affect men of any age. The chances of cure are relatively high and treatment is often more successful, with a greater chance of penile preservation, if men present early.
Following initial assessment which may include the original operation or biopsy of suspected areas on the penis and if found to have penile cancer, we refer patients to St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This Trust is one of around 15 UK specialist units that treat this cancer.
The specialist surgeons from St George’s Hospital in London who we work closely with include Professor Nick Watkin and Mr Ben Ayers.
