Cancer of the penis is cancer that starts in the penis, an organ that makes up part of the male reproductive system.
The exact cause is unknown.
Genital lesions on the penis
Exams and Tests
The health care provider will perform a physical exam, which may reveal a non-tender lesion that looks like a pimple or wart. This growth is typically near the end of the penis.
Treatment depends on the location of the tumor and how much it has spread.
If the tumor is small and near the tip of the penis, surgery may be done to remove only the cancerous part of the penis. This is called a partial penectomy.
