Abstract

Penile cancer has attracted little attention because of its rarity in the USA and Europe. However, in certain countries of Africa (e.g., Uganda), and Asia (e.g., Japan), and North America (e.g., Puerto Rico, Mexico), it is quite common [15]. Thus, a current knowledge of the therapy of penile carcinoma is important in order to provide optimal care to this large group of people and to formulate clinical trials that will improve care.
