1. Prognosis of Penile Cancer
When caught early, the prognosis for penile cancer is optimistic. According to the American Cancer Society, the 5-year survival rate for cancers that were confined to the penis is around 85%. If cancers have spread to nearby tissues or nodes, the 5-year survival rate is around 59%. Good genital hygiene, understanding of risk factors, and safe sexual practices all aid in prevention, early detection, and intervention of penile cancer.
