Abstract [en]

Objectives: To assess penile cancer incidence, stage distribution, adherence to guidelines and prognostic factors in a population-based setting.

Patients and Methods: The population-based Swedish National Penile Cancer Register (NPECR) contains detailed information on tumour characteristics and management patterns. A total of 1 678 men with primary squamous cell carcinoma of the penis identified in the NPECR between 2000 and 2012 were included in the study.

Results: The mean age-adjusted incidence of penile cancer was 2.1/100 000 men, remaining virtually unchanged during the study period. At diagnosis, 14 and 2% of the men had clinical N+ and M+ disease, respectively. Most men were staged pTis (34%), pT2 (19%), or pT1 (18%), while stage information was unavailable for 18% of the men. Organ-preserving treatment was used in 71% of Tis-T1 tumours. Of men with cN0 and >= pT1G2 disease, 50% underwent lymph node staging, while 74% of men with cN1-3 disease underwent lymph node dissection. The overall 5-year relative survival rate was 82%. Men aged >= 40 years and those with pT2-3, G2-3 and N+ tumours had worse outcomes.

Conclusions: The incidence of penile cancer in Sweden is stable. Most men presented with localized disease, and the proportion of non-invasive tumours was high. During the period under study, adherence to guidelines was suboptimum. The overall 5-year relative survival rate was 82%. Older age, increasing tumour stage and grade, and increasing lymph node stage were associated with poorer survival.
