Abstract

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the scrotum is an uncommon neoplasm. It has been described in many different occupations and is associated with a myriad of carcinogens, yet the etiology still remains a mystery. This is the first report of its occurrence in a radiation technologist. Additionally, the use of sentinel lymph node biopsy in SCC has been advocated as a safe method of limiting the morbidity associated with bilateral ilioinguinal dissections. This is the first report of its use in recurrent metastatic SCC of the scrotum.
