Subject:penile cancer

My name is Sonny and I have just been dianosed with penile cancer.  I have had a second opinion and they are both to have surgery.  Partial penectomy.  I am scheduled to have surgery on 2/11/09 at Vanderbilt University Hospital.  My surgeon told me he does about 4-5 such procedures per year.  I just learned about M.D. Anderson and am trying to decide if I should make a trip ro M.D. Anderson before having the partial penectomy.  My surgeon said that chemo would be of no use and radiation would be even more useless.  The only reason for going to M.D. Anderson would be with the hope of not having to do a partial penectomy.

Hi Sonny-

It sounds like you're wanting a second opinion and have lots of questions about these difficult decisions.  Perhaps you have already pursued this, but here's a link to MD Anderson's New Patient Referral page:

http://www.mdanderson.org/patients_public/new_patients/display.cfm?id=D602CED8-7483-11D4-AEBD00508BDCCE3A&method=displayFull

Best of luck with your decision process and please keep in touch.
