Punch biopsy for penile cancer

General

With superficial tumors (Tis-T1), it is clinically impossible to assess the depth of infiltration without performing a punch biopsy. In order to safely choose organ-saving surgery, it is necessary to know whether the tumor is infiltrating and how deeply it expands.  

With advanced penile cancer (T2-T4), determination of the depth of infiltration is not problematic.

A biopsy from the glans or prepuce may be done under local anesthesia.
