Abstract

The spectrum of conditions affecting the penile skin is varied and ranges from simple, benign dermatoses to premalignant and malignant conditions. Recently, improved understanding of the aetiology and natural history of these conditions has shaped new treatment paradigms and a functional knowledge of dermatology, urology and genitourinary medicine is required to successfully diagnose and treat these men. In this article, we explore the common precancerous states that can lead to penile carcinoma and review the recent advances with regards to the molecular basis for these dermatoses and the treatments that may be most effective for these men.
