The role of inguinal lymph node dissection in men with urethral squamous cell carcinoma.

Urol Oncol 2018 12 13;36(12):526.e1-526.e6. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Department of Surgery, Section of Urology, The University of Chicago, Chicago, IL.

Introduction: Urethral squamous cell cancer is a rare disease with limited clinical recommendations regarding management of the inguinal lymph nodes. Despite the similarities to penile cancer in terms of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) histology and lymphatic drainage, there is not enough evidence to recommend for or against a prophylactic inguinal lymph node dissection (ILND) in patients with clinically negative groins and a primary tumor stage of T1b or higher. The objective of the study was to identify the rate of prophylactic inguinal lymph node dissection, node positive rate, and overall survival in patients with clinical T1 to T4 stage. Read More

Nat Rev Urol 2018 Sep;15(9):574-584

Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, USA.

Invasive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the penis is almost always treated with surgical therapy at the primary site. However, almost all other SCC primary sites, such as anal, vulvar, uterine cervix, head and neck, and oesophagus, and their involved nodal basins, can be successfully treated with radiotherapy or combined chemotherapy and radiation, reserving surgery as a salvage option. Review of the penile cancer literature and examination of data from more common SCC primary sites make a case for complete organ preservation of the penis using definitive combined chemotherapy and radiation, reserving surgical therapies as salvage options.

The Prognostic Value of Immune Factors in the Tumor Microenvironment of Penile Squamous Cell Carcinoma.

Front Immunol 2018 11;9:1253. Epub 2018 Jun 11.

Center for Gynecologic Oncology Amsterdam (CGOA), VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The host's immune system plays a pivotal role in many tumor types, including squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs). We aim to identify immunological prognosticators for lymph node metastases (LNM) and disease-specific survival (DSS) in penile SCC. For this retrospective observational cohort study, penile SCC patients ( = 213) treated in the Netherlands Cancer Institute, were selected if sufficient formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumor material was available.
