NO: Penile cancer is a rare in us and a skin cancer that happens to involve the penis. Penile cancer is generally treated with surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and sometimes a combination of therapies. Surgery/biopsy is typically performed first to establish diagnosis, stage of cancer. Several options are available depending on the stage of disease. You need to discuss this with your urologist.
