Abstract

Basal cell carcinoma of the skin is the most common tumor in humans but occurrence in the penis is extremely rare. We report the sixteenth case of basal cell carcinoma of the penis. This lesion was successfully treated with simple local excision. A review of the literature revealed that most such tumors present in the fifth through seventh decades of life on the shaft of the penis. Natural history is that of a slowly growing tumor with little propensity to metastasize. Universal success has been achieved with simple local excision.
