Penile cancer begins on the skin cells of the penis and might work its way inside. Effective treatment can be provided if the cancer is diagnosed in its early stages. Treatment will be a challenge if cancer turns to be in advanced or later stages.
There are a few reasons that might cause penile cancer, such as:
If penile cancer is found in the early stages, doctors prescribe an ointment or cream, which could help treat the issue. Few surgeries could treat penile cancer, such as cryosurgery or cryotherapy, Mohs surgery, lasers, and circumcision. During advanced stages of penile cancer, the doctor would recommend penectomy or surgery.
Early detection is important as there are more options to treat penile cancer and ensure better results. Most treatments at the early stage will not affect the ability to have sex, but radiation or chemotherapy might cause issues. It is recommended to inquire about the possible side effects of the treatments.
Penile cancer is often ignored until it gets worse. Men who maintain good hygiene and who are circumcised are less likely to get penile cancer.
