Adipose tissue, along with arteries, veins, and peripheral nerves, is a normal constituent of mesenchymal tissues encasing the corpora cavernosa at the level of the penile shaft, variously designated as penile fascia or Bucks fascia. To our knowledge, the presence of fat has not been previously reported within the corpora cavernosa. One or 2 transversal histologic sections at the level of the surgical margin at the shaft of 63 consecutive partial penectomy specimens for squamous cell carcinoma were evaluated...

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States and is a well-known cause of oropharyngeal, cervical, vaginal, vulvar, penile, and anal cancers. Despite the proven efficacy of the HPV vaccine, vaccination rates remain persistently low. Much literature has focused on attitudes toward the HPV vaccine; however, researchers have also investigated strategies clinicians can use to improve vaccination attitudes and acceptance. Such strategies include provider education, vaccine reminder/recall, and chart audit and feedback...

Scrotal surgery encompasses a wide-variety of surgical techniques for an even wider variety of indications. In this manuscript, we review our indications, techniques, and pit-falls for various reconstructive scrotal surgeries as-well-as surgical tips for placement of testicular prostheses. Penoscrotal webbing (PSW) is an abnormal, often-problematic distal insertion of scrotal skin onto the ventral penile shaft. There are several effective and straightforward techniques used to revise this condition, which include simple scrotoplasty, single- or double-Z-plasty, or the VY-flap scrotoplasty...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the association between commonly measured serum biomarkers of inflammation and penile and testicular cancer risk in the Swedish Apolipoprotein-related MORtality RISk (AMORIS) study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 205,717 subjects had baseline measurements of C-reactive protein, albumin, and haptoglobin. The association between quartiles and dichotomised values of inflammatory markers and penile and testicular cancer risk were analysed by using multivariate Cox proportional hazard models...

BACKGROUND: Penile cancer is rare, and few population-based studies have described changes in time trend. This study aims to determine whether there has been an evolution in incidence and survival of penile cancer over time in France. METHODS: Rates of age world-standardized incidence (ASRW) and net survival (NS) between 1989 and 2011 were calculated using data from 16 French cancer registries. Time trend incidence and survival analysis were confined to the eight registries operating throughout the full period...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate predictive pathological factors for local recurrence (LR) after glansectomy for penile squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and to develop a risk score for prediction of LR after glansectomy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this retrospective study, we analyzed 117 patients operated between February 2005 and January 2016 in a supraregional penile cancer center in the UK for LR after glansectomy and glans reconstruction. Univariate and multivariate Cox proportional hazards regression was used to identify 4 prognostic indicators for LR...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate contemporary survival trends in penile cancer. METHODS: The National Cancer Database was queried for men with penile cancer diagnosed between 1998 and 2009. Patient, tumor, treatment, and facility characteristics were obtained. Overall survival (OS) was analyzed using the Kaplan-Meier method and multivariable Cox proportional hazards regression model for all cases and stratified by stage. RESULTS: A total of 8,122 cases of penile cancer were reported from 1998 to 2009 in the National Cancer Database...

PURPOSE: In this study, we assess the CK2α expression in human penile squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and its clinical significance. METHODS: A total of 157 human penile SCC tissue samples were immunohistochemically analyzed. In addition, 12 human penile SCC and adjacent normal tissues were examined for CK2α protein and mRNA expression by Western blotting and real-time quantitative PCR, respectively. Survival was analyzed using the Kaplan-Meier test and the log-rank test...

BACKGROUND: We analyzed the trends in presentation of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the penis and determined the socioeconomic predictors for locally advanced (cT3-cT4) disease in the United States. PATIENT AND METHODS: The National Cancer Database was queried for patients with clinically nonmetastatic penile SCC and staging available from 1998 to 2012. Temporal trends per tumor stage were evaluated, and a multivariable logistic regression model was used to identify predictors for advanced presentation during the study period...

Vaginoplasty by penile and scrotal skin inversion is a well-established technique for male-to-female gender confirmation surgery. In this setting, chronic inflammation and lacerations associated with history of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection may induce a high risk of malignant degeneration in the long term. A 78-year-old transgender woman was admitted with genital discomfort and neovaginal discharge. The patient's history revealed male-to-female gender confirmation surgery with construction of a neovagina by penile and scrotal skin inversion at 33 years of age...

Penile cancer (PeCa) is a rare malignancy with potentially devastating effects. Squamous cell carcinoma is the most common variant with distinct precancerous lesions before development into invasive disease. Involvement of the inguinal lymph nodes is the most important prognostic factor in PeCa, and once disease is present outside the groin, prognosis is poor. Metastatic PeCa is challenging to treat and often requires multidisciplinary approaches in management. Due to its rarity, molecular understanding of the disease continues to be limited with most studies based on small, single center series...

Multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) is currently the test of choice for imaging sites of prostate cancer located within the pelvis. However, molecular imaging with PET radiotracers that bind to prostate-specific membrane antigen is increasingly being used for this purpose and may compliment mpMRI findings. We present a case of a 59-year-old man with elevated postprostatectomy serum prostate-specific antigen level who was found on both mpMRI and prostate-specific membrane antigen-targeted PET to harbor residual prostate cancer in the corpus spongiosum along the proximal urethra...

The management of penile cancer has altered dramatically over the last decade. Confidence to excise lesions safely with smaller margins has led to the adoption of penile-preserving techniques and in turn improved the functional and cosmetic results. Patients undergoing partial penectomy (PP) find that the urethral meatus is located in an abnormal ventral position. In addition, there is a high risk of meatal stenosis. We describe our novel technique that allows the urethral meatus to be centralised after PP and creation of a pseudo-glans and wide meatus and therefore maintain the cosmetic appearance of the penis after split thickness skin grafting...

BACKGROUND: The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is associated with the diagnosis of anal, penile, and oropharyngeal cancers in men. Evidence indicates that correct condom use in addition to obtaining the HPV vaccine provides the greatest protection from HPV infections. AIM: To explore young male's beliefs and behavioural intention in relation to receiving the HPV vaccine and using a condom correctly and consistently for sexual contact. METHODOLOGY: A cross-sectional study underpinned by the Theory of Planned Behaviour was conducted with male participants (n=359, 18-28 years) who completed an online survey...

BACKGROUND: For penile cancer (PC) there are no known molecular predictors of lymphatic spread and/or chemoresistance. OBJECTIVE: To identify functional biomarkers that can predict malignant progression and treatment responsiveness. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: We used four patient-derived PC cell lines and measured invasion and capillary tube formation, chemoresponsiveness, and mRNA and protein expression. Data were further validated in E2F1 transcription factor knockdown and overexpression experiments...

In men with advanced penile squamous cell carcinoma receiving first-line chemotherapy, visceral metastases (VM) and Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status ≥1 are poor prognostic factors for overall survival (OS). We hypothesized that tumor gene expression profiling may enhance prognostic stratification and identify potential therapeutic targets. In this retrospective study, RNA extracted from macrodissected tumors underwent profiling for the expression of 738 genes using NanoString. Univariate and multivariate analyses assessed the association of genes, VM, and performance status with OS...
