Penile Cancer Treatment (PDQ®): Treatment - Patient Information [NCI] - Treatment Options by Stage
Stage IV Penile Cancer
Treatment of stage IV penile cancer is usually palliative (to relieve symptoms and improve the quality of life). Treatment may include the following:
- Surgery (wide local excision and removal of lymph nodes in the groin).
- Radiation therapy.
- A clinical trial of chemotherapy before or after surgery.
Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with stage IV penile cancer. For more specific results, refine the search by using other search features, such as the location of the trial, the type of treatment, or the name of the drug. General information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site.
