Risk factors include smoking, non circumcision, HPV (Human Papilloma Virus), and planting your penis in precarious, perilous and perverted places.
Penis cancer is easy to beat if caught early but guys going in for sex checks are getting misdiagnosed.
In 2011, 58-year-old Nigel Smith went in for a check and came out being told he just had a little knot on his dick. Nigel figured he could fix the problem by sleeping on the couch and avoiding his wife. Last year Nigel underwent a partial penectomy (partial removal of the penis). The knot turned out to be cancer.
Nigel notes, 'By the time I saw a urologist, the cancer was stage 3 – one stage away from terminal. I’m now in temporary remission but there’s a 50/50 chance that the disease will return as a secondary cancer – maybe in my lungs or liver.'
For Nigel sex is a thing of the past and neither he nor his wife are pleased.
