Penile enlargement

Partha Hota, Tejas N Patel, Xiaofeng Zhao, Carrie Schneider, Omar Agosto
Although lung cancer has a high propensity for distant metastatic disease, penile metastases from primary lung neoplasms are considered particularly rare. A 71-year-old male presented to our hospital with a rapidly enlarging hard palpable penile mass. MR imaging demonstrated two penile masses centered in the left and right corpus cavernosa. Subsequent CT imaging revealed a spiculated pulmonary mass in the right upper lobe with PET/CT, MRI, and surgical exploration, demonstrating evidence of metastases to the left adrenal gland, right subscapularis muscle, brain, and small bowel...

Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging with18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) combined with computed tomography (CT) provides functional imaging combined with anatomic information, improving diagnostic accuracy and confidence. Although virtually all primary penile tumors are FDG-avid, PET/CT is not recommended for primary tumor staging as it has limited spatial resolution and is hampered by urinary FDG excretion. The accuracy of PET/CT for lymph node staging seems to improve with the pretest likelihood of metastatic nodes...

The aim of the study was to provide a descriptive analysis of familial male-limited precocious puberty (FMPP), which is a rare inherited disease caused by heterozygous constitutively activating mutations of the luteinizing hormone/choriogonadotropin receptor gene (LHCGR). The patient was a ten-month-old boy, presenting with penile enlargement, pubic hair formation, and spontaneous erections. Based on the clinical manifestations and laboratory data, including sexual characteristics, serum testosterone levels, GnRH stimulation test, and bone age, this boy was diagnosed with peripheral precocious puberty...

Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare benign mesenchymal stromal tumour, characterized by locally infiltrative nature and a tendency for recurrence. Only a few cases of penile involvement have been reported in the literature so far. We report a case of aggressive penile angiomyxoma in a sixty-two-year-old obese, diabetic male patient. He presented with obstructive lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and diffuse enlargement of the penis and scrotum. He was managed with excision, reduction scrotoplasty, internal urethrotomy, followed by Leuprolide therapy for prevention of recurrence...

The luteinizing hormone receptor (LHCGR) is necessary for fertility, and genetic mutations cause defects in reproductive development and function. Activating mutations in LHCGR cause familial male-limited precocious puberty (FMPP). We have previously characterized a mouse model (KiLHRD582G) for FMPP that exhibits the same phenotype of precocious puberty, Leydig cell hyperplasia, and elevated testosterone as boys with the disorder. We observed that KiLHRD582G male mice became infertile by 6 months of age, although sperm count and motility were normal...

Injection of the subcutaneous tissues of the penis for enlargement of penile girth has been practised for many years by laypeople and medical practitioners alike. However, with recognition of the complications, the practice has died out. We report a series of five patients who presented having injected foreign materials into the subcutaneous tissues of their penises, including paraffin and mineral oils. Our patients had a variable time course of presentation ranging from 1 day following injection to over 26 years...

A penile tumor (4 × 2.5 × 1 cm) was surgically removed from an African pygmy hedgehog (Atelerix albiventris) aged 3 years and 5 months. The tumor was continuous with the dorsal fascia of the penile head. Histopathologically, tumor cells were pleomorphic (oval-, short spindle- and star-shaped cells) with low cell density. Abundant edematous stroma was weakly positive for Alcian blue staining and positive for colloidal iron reaction. Tumor cells displayed no cellular atypia or karyokinesis. Tumor cell cytoplasm was positive for vimentin antibody, while cytoplasm and nuclei were positive for S-100 protein antibody...

BACKGROUND: Urinary diversion specimens from patients who undergo radical cystectomy are often submitted for urine cytology to screen for recurrent urothelial carcinoma. The objective of the current study was to investigate the frequency and cytohistologic features of cancer recurrence in diversion urine specimens. METHODS: A 10-year retrospective review of archival urinary diversion specimens was conducted. For abnormal cytology cases, cytology slides were reviewed, and their cytomorphology and available corresponding histopathology were documented...

A 50-year-old man presented to the genitourinary medicine clinic with a 3-year history of skin-colored circular papules over the shaft and glans of the penis. There were multiple lesions that were initially small, around 0.3 cm in diameter, and gradually enlarged. Physical examination revealed five nodules over the glans and shaft of the penis, with the largest lesion measuring 3×1 cm over the lateral aspect of the shaft (Figure 1). There were no similar lesions elsewhere. There was no lymphadenopathy and the rest of the examination was unremarkable...

The number of studies reporting lymphoma as a secondary tumor has gradually increased. However, few studies have reported that occurrence of lymphoma as a secondary tumor following treatment for penile carcinoma, particularly cases in which the lymphoma was diagnosed by fine-needle aspiration cytology and flow cytometry. The present study reports the case of a 62-year-old male patient who was troubled with frequent urination and repeated chest tightness for 5 years. The diagnosis upon admission was penile carcinoma...

Fibrolipomas are an infrequent type of lipomas. We describe a case of a man suffering from subcutaneous penile fibrolipoma, who twelve months earlier has been submitted to augmentative phalloplasty due to aesthetic dysmorphophobia. The same patient three years earlier has been submitted to three-component hydraulic penile prostheses implantation due to erectile dysfunction. After six months from removing of the mass, the penile elongation and penile enlargement were stable, the prostheses were correctly functioning and the patient was satisfied with his sexual intercourse and life...

UNLABELLED: The radical soft-tissue mobilization (RSTM) technique has been proposed as an alternative for staged reconstruction of bladder exstrophy. In this video, we demonstrate the successive steps of this technique. METHODS: A newborn male with classic bladder exstrophy underwent bladder closure without pelvic osteotomies at birth; he then underwent RSTM at 1 year of age. TECHNIQUE: Mobilization: The RSTM involved simultaneous intra-pelvic and perineal dissection, aiming at full mobilization of potential urethral sphincter striated structures, levatores ani muscles, pudendal pedicles and corpora cavernosa from their attachment on the pubic bones...

Background. Tuberculosis of the penis (TBP) is rare. Aim. To review the literature. Method. Various internet data bases were searched. Literature Review. TBP could be primary or secondary, may develop following circumcision performed by a person who had pulmonary Tb, and may be transmitted to the penis from ejaculation, contamination from clothing, or from contact with endometrial secretions, following an earlier pulmonary Tb or Tb elsewhere. TBP presents with a painless/painful small nodule, ulcer, mass on penis which gradually enlarges, and induration/swelling of penis, with or without erectile dysfunction...

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) due to steroid 11β-hydroxylase deficiency is the second most common form of CAH, resulting from a mutation in the CYP11B1 gene. Steroid 11β-hydroxylase deficiency results in excessive mineralcorticoids and androgen production leading to hypertension, precocious puberty with acne, enlarged penis, and hyperpigmentation of scrotum of genetically male infants. In the present study, we reported 3 male cases from a Saudi family who presented with penile enlargement, progressive darkness of skin, hypertension, and cardiomyopathy...

PURPOSE: In patients with penile cancer (PeCa) and increased risk of inguinal lymphatic dissemination, inguinal lymphadenectomy offers a direct histological staging as the most reliable tool for assessment of the nodal metastasic status and a definitive oncologic treatment simultaneously. However, peri- and/or postoperative mutilating sequalae often occurn. We report on clinical outcome and complications of a limited inguinal lymph node (LN) dissection. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Clinical and histopathological data of all patients with PeCa who underwent limited inguinal lymphadenectomy (LIL) at our institution between 1986 and 2012 were comprehensively analyzed...

Massive localized lymphedema (MLL) is an uncommon benign skin lesion typically presenting with prominent edema and vascular proliferation in the adipose tissue of lower limbs. When rarely occurring in scrotum, it instead is characterized by a striking proliferation of dermal smooth muscle bundles mimicking acquired smooth muscle hamartoma of dartos. The authors report a rare case of scrotal MLL. A 57-year-old obese man with a history of previous surgery for rectal adenocarcinoma, 20 years earlier, presented with progressive nodular enlargement of the scrotum for 2 years, causing discomfort, difficulty in ambulation, and cosmetic problems...
