Symptoms & Signs
- Genital lesions on the penis
- Painless sore on penis (occasionally, the lesion may cause pain)
- Penis pain and bleeding from the penis (may occur with advanced disease)
Diagnosis & Tests
The health care provider will perform a physical exam, which may reveal a non-tender lesion that looks like a pimple or wart. This growth is typically near the end of the penis.
A biopsy of the growth is needed to confirm if it is cancer.
