Inguinal lymphadenectomy is performed according to the clinical features as well as the risk factors of the primary tumor. In cases involving more than two positive lymph nodes or extranodal growth as well as positive imaging, pelvic lymphadenectomy is indicated. Large or fixed inguinal nodes as well as iliac lymph nodes seen on computed tomography scanning are a good indication for neoadjuvant rather than adjuvant chemotherapy.
