Penile cancer is an aggressive disease and after systemic progression it is virtually incurable. While this squamous cell cancer responds to chemotherapy, successful treatment of lymphatic metastases can only be achieved with aggressive surgical treatment in combination with chemotherapy. However, because penile carcinoma is relatively rare there is a paucity of clinical data on the chemotherapy for this aggressive disease. Recent advances have included the establishment of less toxic regimens incorporating taxanes, while cisplatinum remains central to all regimens. Multi-institutional studies are urgently needed to advance the multimodal care for patients with penile cancer.
