Textbook of Penile Cancer reports accurately on recent developments in the management of penile cancer, whilst also covering the fundamentals of the disease, to provide a comprehensive, stand-alone and up-to-date volume on the subject.The surgical management of penile cancer is shifting towards increasingly refined methods, as it is believed that a proportion of patients undergo overtreatment for the disease. Where traditionally the management of penile cancer has involved partial or total penectomy combined with radical inguinal lymphadenectomy, over the last few years the treatment involves conservative penile reconstructive surgery such that sexual function and phallic length is preserved. Furthermore, the increasing utilization of sentinel lymph node biopsy rather than radical inguinal lymphadenectomy prevents the unnecessary removal of lymph nodes in patients where lymph node metastases has not occurred. There is also likely to be a change in the role of chemotherapy and radiotherapy for advanced disease.
