In brief: Here are some...

The ultimate cause for cancer is the unwanted mutation of local cells leading to their non-stoppable division & growth in mass, which has been known to be associated with HPV infection notably by subtype 16 & 18, phimosis, no circumcision during young age, etc.
But, clinically penile cancer is still a rarity. If concerned, see Doc by following info in http://www.formefirst.com/onDealSickness.html.
