In brief: Long, if treated

For penile cancer that has not spread to lymph nodes (i.
e. For stages i and ii), cure rates after surgery have been reported to be between 80 and 100%. Once there is spread to lymph nodes, the prognosis becomes much more grim, underscoring the importance of prompt treatment; the longer one goes without treatment, the further the cancer spreads and the more difficult it is to treat successfully.

In brief: Depends

Adequate staging will be required.
Often need inguinal lymph node biopsy. Survival depends on therapeutic approach & accurate staging.

Most men survive nowadays, variably mutilated. The HPV vaccine will be a great plus for us men as well as for women -- it protects us from this dread cancer.
