In brief: Usually none

Penile cancer is usually asymptomatic (ie, no symptoms).
It may look ulcerated and have discharge, but there is usually no pain associated with it. There may be bleeding from the tumor or look dry and without discharge.

In brief: Penile Cancer

Usually, a red sore that fails to heal or a white, crater-like patch forms.
These are not painful. If it is painful, it is not likely to be cancer. The earlier penile cancer is treated, the better the prognosis. Penile cancer usually strikes men in their 60's, typically, so a sore on the penis at a much earlier age is likely to represent a skin condition or an infection.
