Penile Cancer

Penile Cancer

More than 20 clinical trials are currently accepting participants diagnosed with Penile Cancer.

Penile cancer occurs when abnormal cells in the penis begin to divide and grow in an uncontrolled manner. This cancer can develop anywhere on the penis, but it is most commonly found under the foreskin in uncircumcised men or on the head of the penis (the glans). It typically starts in the skin cells of the penis and can spread to deeper layers. The exact cause of penile cancer is not always clear, but certain risk factors are associated with its development, including human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, smoking, poor hygiene, age (more common in men over 50), and a history of phimosis (a condition where the foreskin cannot be retracted).
