If you have hpv on penis, and if you keep your general penile hygiene good with no smegma, do you get penile cancer still? Scared!

In brief: Rare but happens

The risk depends on the strain.
The wart strains appear to have no potential to trigger penile cancer. Next, you have ample opportunity should the process begin to seek out treatment before it transitions to a cancer. Just pay attention to the penis & examine it on a regular basis. If any odd sores or skin changes occur, have it evaluated.

In brief: Maybe

Most guys have a few strains of HPV there.
The key is to keep an eye on yourself, and report anything that looks worrisome to your physician right away. Most troublesome are little red or warty patches around the back edge of your glans. If you're circumcised and hygienic, it's a huge plus. Early recognition is the key. Best wishes.
