Radical penectomy was the removal of the entire penis. This may include the parts of the penis which is extended into the pelvis. Passing urine will be accomplished by creating a new opening for the urethra, the tube which will carry urine from the bladder. Based on how much of the penis was affected, the patient can be able to have only tumor & a small amount of the healthy around tissue was removed, some men will have only the tip of the penis removed. For others who are suffering with more advanced cancer, the whole penis should be removed.

PROCEDURE: Surgery was the main treatment for most of the penile cancers, but occasionally radiation therapy will be also used, either instead of or in addition to the surgery. Other local treatment procedures may also be used for the early-stage tumors. Chemotherapy can be given used for some larger tumors or if the cancer has been spread.
