Premalignant Lesions of the Penis

Premalignant penile lesions are a known risk factor for the development of penile neoplasias, and they have been reported in nearly half of invasive tumors. Prompt recognition and treatment prior to malignant transformation may avoid the need for traumatic procedures, which is often required when invasive penile cancer is diagnosed. The current terminology and categorization of penile precursor lesions, including risk factors, management, and prevention is reviewed in this chapter.
