Diagnosing Penile Cancer

If your doctor suspects that a change in the skin of your penis might be cancer, a small piece of tissue from the area of concern, called a biopsy, will be sent to be tested. If the pathologist has found cancer in your biopsy, your doctor may order more tests to help decide which treatment plan would be best. These tests can also help stage the cancer, or see if it has spread. You may need more than one of these tests.
