We report the case of an 87-year-old man with basal cell carcinoma (BCC) of the penis. Treatment was by excisional biopsy and there was no recurrence after thirty-four months. Although BCC is a common skin tumor, it rarely occurs on the penis. A review of the literature shows that most penile BCCs occur on the shaft in older men, have been present for more than a year, and are successfully treated with excisional biopsy. This is the nineteenth reported case of BCC of the penis and represents the oldest patient reported to date.
