Medical decision making for melanoma of the glans penis.

Abstract:

:This case report describes a rare presentation of penile melanoma in which 3 successive primaries arose and were operated from an area of melanosis on the glans penis and prepuce. One of the major factors accounting for the poor prognosis of this patient was the long delay in presentation. This was largely due to the patient's reluctance because of the site of the disease. When diffuse melanotic areas are present in the genital region, in particular given the reluctance of patients with skin lesions in this region to present, the index of suspicion should be high with respect to the risk of transformation and an aggressive follow-up policy should be advocated. Treatment guidelines should not significantly differ from the usual approach of cutaneous melanoma.
