Penile Metastasis from Cancer of Prostate: A Case Report


Rajendra Nerli

Metastatic spread from the prostate to the penis is known to occur, though rare. A needle biopsy remains the most reliable diagnostic modality that allows for histological and immunological confirmation of metastatic spread, and evaluation of the extent of invasion. The mode of metastasis seems to be either by direct invasion, implantation, haematogenous or lymphatic spread. Treatment mainly remains palliative and improving quality of life in view of the poor prognosis and a 6-month mortality of 80%. We report a patient with castrate resistant prostate cancer who presented with obstructive voiding symptoms and reddish lesions on the glans. Biopsy proved it to be a metastasis from the prostate cancer.
