Post-circumcision carcinoma of the penis. I. Clinical aspects.

Bissada NK, Morcos RR, el-Senoussi M

Fifteen patients with post-circumcision squamous cell carcinoma of the penis are discussed (13 were referred from the southwestern region of Saudi Arabia). Carcinoma developed in circumcision scars on the penile shaft. Excision was the only effective treatment and resulted in disease control in approximately 64 per cent of those treated surgically. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy did not seem to be effective in these patients.
